The contract involves enabling works for nine natural pitches and one 3G pitch at the club’s Recon Training Ground in Bodymoor Heath, Tamworth.
The pitches are being relocated on the training ground site because of planned HS2 construction.
An HS2 Ltd spokesperson said: “A portion of Aston Villa’s Bodymoor Heath training ground is needed for phase one of the HS2 project.”
O’Brien’s Tony Mitchell, Operations Manager, said: “The HS2 scheme will have a major impact locally and on the Recon training facility, which will lose a large portion of the current training ground.
“The project is part of the greater plan to allow the football club to maintain existing facilities and replace those affected by HS2.
“We plan to make this transition as simple as possible for Aston Villa and help to create an outstanding new facility for them that will ensure the future of the training academy is not threatened by HS2.”
O’Brien will provide plateaus and associated works for the construction of the new pitches, which will be provided by other contractors.
The works include demolition, the forming of plateaus on site using site won and imported materials, the construction of a new haul road, drainage ditches, land drains, ponds and associated works.
Work has currently started on site and is due for completion in September.
