Repurposing a tired city centre warehouse into a state-of-the-art training centre.
As supporters of Gloucester Rugby, it has been a privilege to work alongside the club to deliver their new training facility.
Following an extensive site appraisal period, the club took an opportunity to repurpose a warehouse located adjacent to the Kingsholm Stadium, creating a new rugby campus in the heart of the city. Phase 2 of this project looks to bring additional staff, facilities and technical skills into the training facility. The Development Studio worked closely with Gloucester Rugby to understand each department’s individual needs, and secured planning for the proposal in late 2022.
Working with Michael and the TDS team on the design of our rugby training facility has been an exceptional experience. Michael’s expertise in architecture and design, coupled with his deep understanding of our unique needs and vision, resulted in a facility that exceeded our expectations. Michael demonstrated an unmatched level of creativity and innovation, ensuring our training space not only met functional requirements but also encapsulated the spirit and essence of rugby. His attention to detail and dedication to delivering a space that truly serves its purpose for our athletes was evident throughout the entire process. Not only did Michael exhibit professionalism and expertise, but he also communicated effectively, keeping us informed and involved at every stage of the project. His ability to transform concepts into reality is a testament to his skill and passion for his craft. We are immensely grateful for Michael and the TDS team’s commitment to excellence and the design he has brought to our training facility. It has truly elevated our training environment, contributing to the growth and success of our team.
