Worcester Arena appoints builder for April start

The University of Worcester has appointed builder Willmott Dixon to develop Worcester Arena, a multi-purpose sports venue. The 6,000m² venue will have retractable seating for up to 2,000 people and aims to attract top-class regional, national and international events to the city.

As the new home for Worcester Wolves Basketball Club, it is to have special emphasis on international level basketball though its 12 courts, and will cater for a range of indoor sports, including major disability team sports.

Construction work is due to start in April, once planning approval has been received, and should be finished next year. Wilmott Dixon will work with architect Roberts Limbrick to get the design through planning.
