2017 has seen a record number of Sports Capital Grant applications seeking funding from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport’s Capital Programme. This year over 2,300 clubs and sports organisations, the highest number ever, completed applications seeking financial assistance to develop sporting facilities. In fact, such is the demand that this year’s Sport Capital Grants budget has been doubled to €60 million, a very welcome decision by the Minister for Transport and Sport. This will have a significant impact on sporting facilities right across the country.
In recent years PST Sport has worked with clients on numerous projects that were made possible by the Sports Capital Programme. Our services include initial consultation and design, drainage, base works, civil engineering, right through to installation. The team works closely with each client ensuring they are fully involved in, and guided through all stages of planning, design, installation, launch and maintenance. To date our feedback from clients has been exceptional – view TESTIMONIALS.
