Tarka Tennis and Football Centre

Devon Quantity Surveyors: Tarka Tennis and Football Centre,
Seven Brethren Bank, Barnstaple, Devon.

A £3.9M project at Seven Brethren Bank, Barnstaple, Devon for North Devon District Council.

The Works comprise the design, construction and completion of six indoor tennis courts, six outdoor floodlit tennis courts, a "Kids Zone" and two outdoor football pitches, together with offices, cafeteria, changing and servicing facilities, all associated external works, parking and access roads.

Gates Construction Consultants provided Project Management and Quantity Surveying services for the Client. Built on an old landfill site, the treatment of methane gas and extensive soil stabilisation was required to allow the development to take place. Despite this, construction was successfully completed on target with the 46 week build programme.

Launched by the LTA, the centre is one of the premier facilities in the South of England and has proved highly popular since its opening. Almost ten years since its completion the building remains in excellent condition with minimal on-going maintenance required.
