Crick Sports Centre

A brand-new Community Sports Centre in Crick was built recently on the back of a ‘village needs’ audit to improve the sporting facilities available in Crick.

The purchase of land and building costs for the various pitches, courts, car park and changing areas were financed by grants and fundraising activities by Crick Athletic Football Club and Crick Parish Council.

AMJ Construction was the main contractor for the sports centre build, and they were using their local Travis Perkins branch to purchase aluminium guttering materials.

Travis Perkins Northampton, an existing supplier of ARP, asked Area Sales Manager Nigel Hancock if there was an alternative metal rainwater system to the one specified.

Aluminium rainwater gutters and downpipes

ARP was not only able to provide an equivalent quality aluminium rainwater system but was also able to offer a saving against the original specification.

In addition, ARP was able to turn the order around in a week, thus enabling AMJ Construction to meet its completion deadline.

Sentinel Beaded Half Round Snap-fit gutter is quick and easy to install, durable and can be polyester powder coated to a colour of your choice.

Made from aluminium, it is non-corrosive and non-combustible and needs little or no maintenance during its lifetime.

Colonnade Swaged Aluminium Downpipes are also made from aluminium and are perfectly compatible with the Sentinel Gutter system.

Together, ARP aluminium gutters and downpipes provide a high-quality, low-maintenance rainwater system that will last more than 30 years.


Aluminium guttering: the eco-friendly choice

Sentinel and Colonnade products are made from recycled aluminium, which can be further recycled once they reach the end of their useful life, with no loss of material properties, making it a very environmentally friendly choice.

Mark Rigby, Sales Assistant at Travis Perkins, commented: “quality product at an affordable price and delivered on time”.
