Case Study

Birmingham City FC

Major pre-season refurbishment works at St Andrews stadium.

Following the acquisition of Birmingham City FC by SCL (Shelby Company Limited) in July 2023, Stadium Support Services were engaged by Ardent Sports Consultancy on behalf of BCFC to carry out 8 major refurbishment projects to the professional team areas at St Andrews.


With the purchase of the club occurring later than planned, it left only 3 weeks until the first home fixture to complete the following works:

Home Team Dressing Room
Installation of water-resistant plasterboard ceiling complete with spotlights and floor/ ceiling concealed LED strip mood lighting.

Player’s Tunnel
Complete refurbishment including installation of 200sqm blue astroturf, redecoration throughout, and major atmospheric lighting upgrades.

Reconfigure of space, installation of Corian trough vanity unit, waterless urinals, water-saving toilets, marble wall tiles, anti-slip flooring, and redecorating throughout.

Shower Area
Installation of moisture-resistant ceiling, IP rated down lights, 14 concealed showers, premium marble wall tiles and antislip flooring including recessed drainage.

Managers Office
Installation of bespoke breakfast bar area, upgrades to electrics, lighting and ceiling. Re-plaster and decorating throughout.

Coaches Room
Installation of 3 no. bespoke benches and cushions, LED lighting, flooring, and replaster/ decorate throughout.

Ice-Bath Room
Installation of moisture resistant ceiling, IP rated LED mood lighting, tiled walls, anti-slip flooring, and enabling works for installation of cryo units.

Medical Room
Complete refurbishment including new medical grade flooring, moisture resistant ceiling and bespoke benches.


After receiving sign-off, mobilisation commenced within 24 hours. It was essential that all materials were ordered within 48 hours to ensure delivery to the site to guarantee ontime delivery and mitigate delays. Without the time for a fully comprehensive site survey, the project had to be delivered dynamically with constant input from Stadium Support Services senior team and the client. Through precision planning, our multiskilled inhouse team simultaneously and seamlessly delivered 8 major refurbishment projects in unison, ahead of BCFCs first home game of the season.
