Hackney MUGAs

RSS have designed two MUGAs in Hackney. The first, in Haggerston Park, provides three multi-use games areas with polymeric surfaces and a synthetic turf pitch together with a sports pavilion and changing rooms for use by the school and the local community. As a high quality green space with excellent environmental and management standards, Haggerston Park has been awarded a national standard Green Flag award.

The second provides a new community facility together with a multi-use games area at Jubilee Primary School. The single-storey building reinforces and adds definition to the site boundary and provides a positive edge between the games area and the main school entrance. Rivington Street Studio assisted with the school’s successful application for Football Foundation funding. A future phase of the project will include an extension to its Special Education Needs base.

"I must commend RSS on the thoroughly professional service provided in terms of advice, quality of presentation and their attention to detail, all delivered with a friendly and personal touch."
