Northern Ireland’s Ravenhill Stadium in Belfast, has benefitted from several redevelopments in recent years, the most recent being a £16m investment in three new stands.
Andy Dukelow, Managing Director of Franke Sissons, also known as Franke Washroom Systems, “Ravenhill has a long and compelling Rugby history. We are very proud to have been selected to provide washrooms in this stunning facility”.
Capacity has increased at Ravenhill from 11,000 to 18,000 which meant the ground was capable of hosting a Heineken Cup quarter-final and a RaboDirect PRO12 final on April 5th. “Ulster Rugby Chief Executive, Shane Logan, said “The new Ravenhill Stadium is a world class stadium and a state of the art home for all of rugby in Ulster.”
Franke Washroom Systems, working in partnership with Harvey Group and Beggs & Partners of Belfast, supplied stainless steel urinals and washtroughs for the washrooms in Aquinas, Memorial and Grand stands
Robert Hall, of Harvey Group explains “Washrooms are not the most stylish part of a stadia refit but when you consider the numbers of people on site on match days it’s vital that the specification is up to the job! We have to ensure the product will be easy to clean, extremely durable and simple to maintain, and in the event of any kind of damage that we can get it working as soon as possible.
Franke Washroom Systems made a major contribution in assisting Harvey Group deliver the three new stands on time and to very high standard. The input of their design department through to the quality of the final product was top notch.”
