Brand new Coaches’ changing rooms at Ipswich Town Football Club from Helmsman Storage Solutions

Brand new Coaches’ changing rooms at Ipswich Town Football Club from Helmsman Storage Solutions

Ipswich Town Football Club is constantly evolving and has recently been undergoing many stadium improvements. Including brand new hugely anticipated LED digital perimeter advertising and two-camera footage on iFollow Ipswich for fans to watch live streams of the games should they not be able to attend. Part of the fantastic stadium improvements also included a brand-new coaches’ changing rooms, which Helmsman had the opportunity to manufacture and install.

Helmsman were excited to get to work with not only an important Suffolk club, but also to be working with a local team, as many of their recent projects have been a large distance from their Bury St Edmunds factory from the North of Scotland, all the way down to Exeter.

This project consisted of many Helmsman products, with lockers, cubicles, vanity units and IPS panels being supplied. Alongside the team at Ipswich Town FC, they designed, manufactured and installed 8 bespoke 1 compartment laminate lockers, 1775mm high x 400mm wide x 500mm deep on a cantilevered seat stand. The theme of the changing rooms was kept slick and professional, with The See Group’s Biocarbon Laminate used in colour Gabbro. This fantastic carbon neutral laminate is strong, moisture resistant, easy to clean and has antibacterial protection, perfect for a changing room project. The locks chosen for the lockers were Lowe and Fletcher 2800 combination locks, also a great choice for the coaches’ changing rooms.

Whilst they offer a wide range of cubicle options, they worked with the team at Ipswich Town to design a bespoke floor to ceiling cubicle to fit their needs. The changing room design featured 2 Bespoke Floor to Ceiling shower cubicles and 1 Bespoke Floor to Ceiling Toilet Cubicle. Also included in the project were 4 sets of IPS (Integrated Plumbing System) Panels and a Solid Grade Laminate Vanity unit, all in matching Solid Grade BioCarbon Laminate in colour Gabbro.

It was great to work alongside Ipswich Town FC on this project and look forward to working on more local projects in the future.
