Mick George Ltd has landed a deal to supply 16,900m3 of concrete to help build the new Leicester City Football Club training centre.

Mick George Concrete has signed the £1.2m deal with Gallagher Group who are employed by principal contractor McLaren Construction.

The 60-week production will see Mick George supplying concrete materials from its brand-new batching plant located at Mountsorrel, Leicestershire – one of two sites that the business operates in the county.

The training centre is an impressive structure that moulds into the landscape.

Surrounding the building will be 11 full-size outdoor pitches, eight smaller pitches, five training grids and two goalkeeping areas.

The indoor facilities include 35 bedrooms, a hydrotherapy pool, rehabilitation facilities and dining areas for the club’s academy and first team, as well as administration offices and a media centre.

Next to the main building is a full-size indoor artificial pitch.

The centre will include a sports turf academy, to train the next generation of groundspeople, and a 499-seat mini-venue show pitch, so that the under-23 and under-18 teams can experience a match environment.

Michael George, Managing Director of Mick George Ltd said: “We are very excited to work on this prestigious project.

“As a business we’re always engaging in and supporting projects that harness the development of talented individuals. We’re certain that this project will deliver in that aspect.

“Our Concrete service continues to make progress, and the award of such a high-profile project is testament to the quality service that we provide.

“It’s a great project to get our new Leicestershire batching plant fully functioning.’’
