St Helen Rugby Club – Langtree Park Rugby League Stadium
Being the principal aggregate block supplier at St Helen Rugby League Football Club’s Langtree Park Rugby League Stadium was right at the top of life long fan and CCP Building Products owner Jim Woodyer’s bucket list. With a capacity of over 18,000 the stadium was granted full planning permission on 20 May 2008 and construction started in 2010.
The first rugby league match to be played at the stadium was between St. Helens and Widnes on Friday 20 January 2012 which St. Helens won by 42-24 as they moved in ready for the 2012 Super League season. In 2014 St Helens were both Super League Champions and League Leaders Shield winners. Supplying the block for this prestigious project meant that CCP Building Products were winners both on and off the field.
In 2017 having been renamed the ‘Totally Wicked Stadium’ the league form has got off to a shaky start so right now the only things solid at the ground are the blocks its made of— CCP Building Products providing the foundation to build a dream on.
Manchester City FC – Etihad South Stand
CCP Building Products have provided materials for many of the regions prominent building projects. None more so than the provision of the dense and medium dense concrete blocks that were required for the construction of Manchester City’s six thousand seat expansion of the third tier of the South Stand which increased the Etihad’s capacity to more than 54,000.
This was in addition to the provision of a percentage of the dense and medium dense concrete blocks that CCP provided as the finishing touches took place to City’s prestigious £200 million City Football Academy. A sign in the new complex, conspicuously placed there by the club’s owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan proclaims, ‘We are building a structure for the future, not just a team of all-stars’.
