Brentwood Borough Council – King George’s Playing Field.

By Rob Kennedy · 15 March 2022

We are pleased to have been involved with Brentwood Borough Council’s King George’s Playing field redevelopment.

The new KGPF Pavilion/Leisure Hub was formerly opened on Friday 11th March by the Mayor Councillor Olivier Sanders with the planting of a tree which tied in with the council’s, Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The new pavilion will provide, changing rooms, communal meeting spaces, sensory room, Changing Places, Café, golf club rooms, golf shop, ‘TAG’ non-linear assault course for young adults and a soft play area for younger children.

The multi-million-pound redevelopment also includes an outdoor Splashpad area and Sky Play facility which will open at Easter.

The additions to the park will make it useable all year round and whatever the weather as well as focussing on the health and wellbeing of the community.

We assisted Brentwood as Quantity Surveyors and Cost Consultants.

Rob Kennedy, our Consultant said: “It was a pleasure working on this development to ensure the successful delivery of a scheme which was overshadowed by Covid and all the pressures that placed on the team delivering to a such tight timescale and budget.”

The scheme was developed through Alliance Leisure Services and their contractor partners ISG, Kompan and Ustigate and will be operated on behalf of the council by Everyone Active.
