Work to refurbish toilet facilities inside the Utilita Energy Stadium’s concourses is now underway. 

The club has teamed up with Hurtley Plumbing and Heating, MSR Joinery, Sondad Flooring Sampling Service and McLarnon Electrical Contractors to break ground on this new, long-term project. 

Commencing in the lower tier of The Kop, this exciting partnership will see City work closely with the four companies to entirely refurbish toilet facilities inside concourses, ahead of the start of the 2021/22 season and beyond. 

Work will include the upgrading of basin sinks and toilets, and installation of hygienic non-touch sensor taps and new water cylinders - to significantly increase in the volume of hot water. 

New hand dryers will also be installed, along with new flooring, IPS vanity units and IPS concealed toilet frames. 

The project is part of an ongoing long-term strategy to improve and upgrade Valley Parade, and follows the installation of a new players’ tunnel, supporter seating and dugouts - in addition to the ongoing refurbishment of the stadium’s corporate and catering facilities. 

City’s commercial manager, Michael Shackleton, said: “We are pleased to be launching another long-term project as part of our plan to improve the Utilita Energy Stadium. 

“It is no secret that the toilets in concourses are in quite a poor state, and in need of some ‘TLC’, so to now be turning our attention to them represents another significant step forward, for us. 

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank our friends at Hurtley Plumbing and Heating, MSR Joinery, Sondad and McLarnon for sharing our vision and making this exciting project possible. 

“It is one which will require a lot of hard work and perseverance, over the course of the next few years and beyond, but we are looking forward to seeing it come to life and being able to enjoy a much better Valley Parade for all, as a result.”
