In 2006, S&T led a significant refurbishment of the facilities at Newtown Park in Wellington to provide the Wellington Phoenix football team - New Zealand’s only professional football franchise - with a top-rate training base.
This project involved design and contract administration of a major alteration and refurbishment of the grandstand, construction of a new clubroom, and construction of a new storage shed. Originally located beneath the Park’s stadium, the new training base provides modern, spacious facilities and much-needed shelter from the wind for the Park’s running track. If needed, the single-storey structure can be modified to accommodate additional spectator seating above - providing flexibility for the future of this fledgling team. Subsequently we have also been involved in a number of lighting projects at the park, which have further improved the facilities.
