One of our favourite projects to work on to date has been our collaboration with O’Brien Contractors for Aston Villa – a fantastic opportunity for the team! In this article, we’ll explore our GRP manufacturing service and the buildings we designed and manufactured for them in detail.

40 years experience

We have over 40 years of experience manufacturing gatehouses, making us experts in providing bespoke GRP buildings to your design and dimensions.

Our design team will work closely with you to identify your requirements and the chosen layout for your project. Your gatehouse will be manufactured using almost maintenance-free GRP and we offer a vast choice of colours for gatehouse walls, roof fascia’s, windows and doors allowing us to match corporate colour schemes. The buildings can also be finished externally with a wide range of cladding options to match existing structures.

As we design and manufacture all our products in-house, we are perfectly placed to partner with you when you need a product for your exact needs. Our gatehouses can be specified with many options including:

  • WC’s
  • Electrics and lighting
  • Worktops and counters
  • Kitchen areas
  • Heating and ventilation
  • Air-conditioning
  • External Cladding

The Aston Villa Project: An Overview

Aston Villa F.C. is one of the oldest football clubs in the UK, a premier league club founded in 1874. We were delighted to collaborate with O’Brien Contractors in the construction of the Bodymoor Health Training Academy site, which is now one of the finest training facilities in the UK sports industry. We were thrilled to provide not just one, but three GRP buildings for the project! 

We were first contacted by O’Brien Contractors regarding the construction of gatehouses for welfare purposes. Our design team worked hard to design and manufacture gatehouses with a layout in accordance with the unique needs of a top-tier football facility whilst maintaining security.

The Aston Villa Gatehouse: A Closer Look

Like all of our projects, these gatehouses were designed with quality in mind. Two was designed as stylish gatehouse’s, the third building is a versatile two-section unit, serving not just as an amenity block but as a catering facility too. The bespoke gatehouses and buildings were finished externally with UV-protected cedar wood.
