New FA Academy, Burton gets Custom Group blinds!

It won't have escaped the notice of anybody seriously interested in the 'beautiful game', that the English Football Association have recently announced the opening of their prestigious £120 million training and sports science facility in Burton, Staffordshire.

In addition to the extensive training facilities and on site hotel, 'St George's Park' is hailed to be an elite sports medicine, treatment and performance research centre.

Working in association with Edmund Shipway LLP, Custom Group Ltd were called in to supply and install blinds to the sports science building, housing some of the establishment's key areas such as Director's offices, boardroom/meeting rooms along with physio and consulting rooms. Managing Director Mark Johnson commented "It's always an honour for Custom Group to be selected to provide products to such a prestigious new construction project. This quite simply is a stunning facility and the blind specification and performance needed to be of the very highest standard. The client selected blinds from the excellent Swiss based Silent Gliss range and our engineers complemented the looks of the blinds with an impeccably finished installation. A great result overall and our small contribution to helping all the professional athletes that use this facility over the coming years."
