Sports England mortars for new Warwickshire College Sports Complex

19th January 2010: Five new ‘Sports England’ colours have been developed by CEMEX Mortars for the sports complex at the new £35million Warwickshire College. The five bespoke colours: Sports England red, green, yellow, white and natural have been created to match the colours of the blocks used in different areas of the build.

St Modwen, the main contractors started work on the site off Mill Road, Brownsover, Rugby at the beginning of February and sub-contracted the brick work to Fast Track Construction, based in Derby. To date, over 330 tonnes of the specialist CEMEX mortar has been used by Fast Track.

The Sports England colours were developed by CEMEX technologists as part of the bespoke service. Customers can match the blocks exactly or complement the colour to give buildings a unique design feature.

The five Sporty colours were a blend of four basic shades expertly combined: black, yellow, red and terracotta, with the addition of extra pigments in two of the colours. The colours took the technologists over 40 hours to blend.

The college is part of a new ‘urban community’ and is sited on 82 acres, which was formerly the Alstom Industrial complex. The Sports hall will consist of a four-court sports hall and multi-gym with changing facilities that will also be available to the community.
