Pulse have created a brand new £2.7M Pulse Soccer & Fitness centre at Phoenix Collegiate (Manor Foundation) Business Enterprise and Sports College in Wednesbury, West Midlands.
The site was completed in January 2011. The new centre includes 8 third generation 5-a-side pitches and a dedicated 60 x 40 coaching arena. There is a 6000 sq ft pavilion with changing room provision for both male and female players, that also includes a state-of-the-art fitness suite with a 55 station Pulse gym with separate male and female gym changing, a dance studio and function suite with the latest interactive entertainment and gaming systems and a stylish big-screen sportsbar and lounge.
The school generates revenue from the facility through an agreed income share with Pulse, this agreement means that the school is not investing any capital in the centre but it ultimately owns the centre at the end of the agreement with Pulse.
Students have access to the new facilities during the day and the facilities are open to the local community 7 days a week. This business model from Pulse shows how educational establishments can work hand in hand with private business to create sites that are beneficial for entire communities, not just schools. The site is fully compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act and offers many local employment opportunities.
You can visualise the progression of the building work, the quality of the building materials, internal, external décor finishes and much more over a series of photographs taken at various stages throughout the development.
