Changing room on show in Rotherham

Prospec, a Rotherham-based supplier and installer of cubicles and lockers, has recently supplied the changing rooms for the New York Stadium, the new home of Rotherham United FC.

The company worked with Sheffield-based Panel Systems, which cut to size, machined and supplied the 500m² of Compact Grade Abet Laminate, with Prospec carrying out the installation.

Panel Systems fabricated the 120 cubicles and 60+ lockers for the players home and away changing rooms, as well as visitor WC facilities, which were supplied in the football club’s trademark red and white.

The Compact Grade Laminate was supplied in 12mm thickness, providing a robust and aesthetically pleasing locker and cubicle format to reflect the nature of this prestigious new stadium.

The landmark £20 million community stadium is located close to Rotherham town centre and will be used as a football and sports venue, as well as for banqueting, weddings and conferences. Prospec’s team of installers worked on the installation for several weeks to complete it in time for the stadium opening in August.

“It was important that the lockers and cubicles shared the same high specification as the rest of the build,” says Karl Dobson, site manager for GMI Construction, the main contractor for the new stadium. “We needed them to be robust, but also to look good too. Prospec’s team worked hard to ensure they could be supplied and installed well in time for the opening and we are delighted with the overall look and feel of the changing rooms.”

Compact Grade Laminate is one of the few materials that can be reliably used in wet or humid environments as it is completely waterproof. It is also highly resistant to cleaning fluids and chlorine, and is virtually indestructible.
