MCFC Academy

To be regarded as a global centre of excellence the new football training Academy at the Manchester City complex was a multi million pound build with exceptional community investment.

As a project to work on, this was inspirational in terms of the involvement of the local community, recruiting local residents into trade specific roles and funding the training of learners to further their vocations.

TMJ was presented with an innovation award for the concept and design of the de-mountable suspended timber ceiling installed in the Press Conference Room which is now used by the world media. Working closely with our joinery manufacturer we produced an exceptionally high quality product that not only exceeded the expectations of the client but provided them with a valued solution for their complex requirements.
