Sports pitch specialist, GreenFields announced their partnership with FM247, adding yet another string to their bow in providing non-league clubs with a total service for football pitch and stadium development.
As Official Pitch Partner of the EVO-STIK Northern Premier League and EVO-STIK League South, GreenFields with this new collaboration are able to provide a ‘one stop’ building solution, which recognises the growing need from clubs at this level to communicate and plan ground developments through one main company. Clubs who are now interested in a new 3G pitch but would also like a club house refurb or complete new build which could be developed simultaneously to minimise disruption, are able to do so through GreenFields and vice versa with a new sports pitch through FM247.
Paul Milton, Commercial Director at GreenFields said: “When we met with FM247 for the first time it made sense straight away to partner with them to further strengthen our business model. FM247 are a highly capable, experienced club house designer and constructor and through this collaboration we can now work with clubs to help them achieve their aspirations of developing their facility as a whole from the surface upwards.”
FM247 (Facilities Management Group) based in Sheffield but working nationwide, specialise in building and facilities maintenance and refurbishment tailoring each project specifically to the end user. With a workforce in place of over 500, FM247 are more than well equipped to take each new club house from conception to completion with planning, design and build capabilities. To enable clubs to see the impact that a new club house will have FM247 and GreenFields will be utilising a new 3D modelling software package, which visualises the new developments in situ.
Gary Horton, Managing Director at FM247 Group commented: “This is a great partnership all round! From the first meeting with GreenFields it’s been very positive, and all based around customer delivery. For FM247 to offer a ‘one stop shop’ for our sporting clients is a very exciting proposition indeed! It will ensure our clients can concentrate on their daily business issues and allow us to Project Manage their new build from start to finish with TOTAL accountability. This is what our combined industries have been requiring for years and could be a potential gamechanger.”
Over the coming months, GreenFields will be working with FM247 exclusively to develop new joint marketing materials to support clubs with their decision making, planning and execution of new and improved stadium facilities.
