Newmarket's July Course Weighing Room and Head-On Stand redevelopment gets the go ahead
Having worked on this project as Project Manager and MEP Consultant since its inception, we are thrilled to announce that the redevelopment of the Weighing Room and Head-on-Stand at Newmarket’s July Course will soon be starting on site.
The work will see the internal layout and facilities of the Weighing Room upgraded as part of an ongoing industry-wide project, whilst externally the traditional thatched roof overlooking the Winner’s Enclosure will be retained.
Trackside both the Head-on Stand and trackside bar facilities will be upgraded and include a first-floor viewing terrace with stunning views of the racecourse.
The Head-on Stand will receive a new roof and will have parts of its exterior upgraded to blend into the new look of the complex and the project will also deliver sustainability improvements for The July Course via solar panels and low energy lighting.
We continue to value our longstanding relationship with The Jockey Club and look forward to delivering this project for them ahead of the 2023 race season.
“We are excited to be undertaking this project which will deliver an improved experience for both participants and racegoers. The new complex will give racing professionals and participants the top-class facilities they need as well as enhancing the customer experience, all whilst maintaining the unique look and feel of The July Course. We are looking forward to work beginning in the autumn and finishing the project before racing returns in June 2023.”
