Ridge was appointed to provide services to the construction of a bespoke new cricket academy.
Working in partnership with Sussex Cricket, the Aldridge Cricket Academy offers students the chance to develop sporting talent and academic qualifications together, rather than having to choose between the two. Ridge was appointed to provide project and cost management services along with CDM (Construction Design and Management) coordinator services to the new facility.
Ridge, working alongside the design team, managed the design process and ensured that the key stakeholders and end users were involved in the design journey.
The completed facility includes:
3-wicket cricket hall with 20m run-ups for each cricket lane
2-storey element comprising changing
Facilities, first-aid room, gym, umpires’ changing rooms, office, kitchen and function space with external balcony overlooking the cricket square
The project was completed on time and within the agreed budget.
