S&C Slatter co-ordinated and worked well with both the Council’s asset management team and the Xcel Sports Hub’s principle contractor. They worked hard to fully address our requirements and were proactive throughout the project. The Council and the four resident clubs are all very proud of the facilities created at the Xcel Sports Hub and we look forward to enjoying them for many years to come.
