Quattro were successfully selected, alongside Beard Construction, to develop a new rugby ground for Dings Crusaders RFC - one of Bristol’s oldest rugby clubs.

The proposal was for a covered stand that could accommodate 200 spectators, a new clubhouse featuring a club room, two-court sports hall, weight training room, changing rooms, and a club shop; alongside a full-size all-weather floodlit pitch, full-size grass pitch, floodlit training pitch and three junior pitches.

The ground will also provide new opportunities for the club to use the facilities on non-match days. Hosting conferences, exhibitions and events will provide alternative and valuable commercial opportunities, alongside the traditional hospitality and match day experiences.
