Acies hits the back of the net for Colchester football club

Professional property and construction consultancy, Acies has announced its involvement on the ?13million development project for Colchester Football Club.

Acies has been instructed by Barr Ltd, the main contractor on the development, to undertake the Civil Design work for the Club?s new stadium which will include adoptable roads, attenuated drainage system, nitrate treatment plant and foundations.

The new stadium is being moved from its original site at Layer Road to an impressive greenfield site, which will become the Weston Homes Community Stadium. With the capacity to seat 10,000 fans, the scheme is a joint venture between the Football Club, Colchester Borough Council and Colchester Community Trust.

Barr Ltd has constructed over 40 stadia projects throughout the UK, including Southampton Football Club, Northampton Rugby Football Club and Celtic Football Club.

After 70 years at its old ground, the new development will become a clear marker that aims to transform Colchester into a prestigious regional centre.
