Populous snares QPR sports hub job

  • Comment

Olympic Stadium architect Populous has been appointed to design a training facility and community sports hub for Queens Park Rangers (QPR) football club in west London

The new facility will be built on the club’s Warren Farm training base in Ealing and is planned to be ready for the 2014 to 2015 football season.

QPR chief executive Philip Beard said: ‘It is fantastic to have Populous on board.

‘Having secured Warren Farm, we wanted to work with the best people in the industry to develop a training ground which will benefit not only the first team, but also the academy and the local community.

‘Populous have great experience in this field and are the perfect fit for us.

He added: ‘Over the summer, a great amount of renovation has taken place at our current training ground at Harlington which has reduced the urgency for us to move to a new site.

‘We are working very closely with Ealing Council and are very excited about what we can create.  It is our intention to have a fully operational training facility in place ahead of the 2014/15 season.’

Christopher Lee, senior principal at Populous, said: ‘We are excited to be designing the new training complex for QPR.  

‘The club have an incredible history and a clear vision of where they are going; the new training complex will become the foundation on which the club’s future is built.  

‘The new QPR training complex draws on our experience designing elite athlete training facilities around the world, to create an unparalleled centre of excellence for QPR’s first team and academy, set alongside local community sports.’
