About this Project:

The site at Bearwood Estate was identified and contracts were initially exchanged with the Royal Merchant Navy School Foundation for the purchase of nearly 120 acres of land in October 2013.

The planning process was difficult and protracted and progress stalled at times but, in little more than two years at the helm, Mr Dai’s determination and vision has entirely transformed the promise of a modern purpose-built training facility for the whole club into a reality.

The Bearwood Park site, set over almost 120 acres, hosts three full-size first-team pitches (with the same dimensions as the pitch at the Madejski Stadium), a floodlit artificial 3G pitch, goalkeeping practice area, first-team building and Academy facility.

The new training ground, which is five miles from the Madjeski, is three times bigger than Hogwood and will cost more than £50m to complete, according to the club.

BEMS Description

Linear Control Systems were chosen to design and install the building energy management system (BEMS), to suit the new build project and optimise the training facilities for optimum performance.
