Sports Hub Development

From concept to completion

Working with the public, private and voluntary sectors, we specialise in the design, funding and development of sports facilities.

We take clients from concept development and project planning, through accessing financial support from all major funding agencies, to contract management and completion.

Whether you need to use a full range of professional services or just a selection, our experience and comprehensive knowledge of the processes of planning, designing, funding and developing facilities for sport mean that we are uniquely placed to offer you the right advice.

Local Government

Having been Head of Leisure for a large metropolitan authority, Steve Wells now works with all tiers of local government, from County to Parish Councils.

Community Clubs

Community consultation is a common theme of many sports projects. We develop essential links and liaise with the community, local authority officers and other agencies.

Schools & MATs

We help schools raise standards in physical education and school sport by creating outstanding sports facilities that students and community users can be proud to use.

All Weather Surfaces for Sport

Artificial Grass Pitch (AGP), Hard Court projects, Athletics tracks and Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGA); suitable for multiple activities like football, netball, tennis and basketball.

Buildings for Sport

Often designed to support adjacent sports grounds, pavilions provide stands, team changing rooms, club rooms and the facilities needed to create a social hub around your club.

Natural Turf Pitches

We design and develop natural turf playing pitches on greenfield or derelict sites, or make improvements and upgrades to existing pitches where the playing surface or the drainage requires attention.

Funding your project

Steve Wells Associates prepares and submits the funding applications on behalf of your organisation. This can include all consultation, comprehensive site and development plans, programmes of use, business and management plans, and all online applications. Where instructed, we provide full project management through to completion, from the grant claims process to final account.

Football Foundation

Football Foundation Funding Expertise

We are particularly experienced in Football Foundation projects, drawing down over £41 million in funding from successful applications in the last few years. Typically, the average grant from the Football Foundation has been around 50% of each scheme’s whole project costs although, in some instances, either partnership funding or the award itself far exceeded that proportion.
