STRI Group, a global design, engineering and management consultancy, has launched a new brand following a period of growth and diversification.
The group's skills were founded within the design, management and maintenance of sports surfaces, and they continue to deliver and implement strategies for sports facilities and their surrounding infrastructure, as well as working within residential, corporate and commercial spaces.
Since setting up a construction company, Carrick Sports Construction, and adding the Environmental Protection Group to the organisation, as well as investing in their already established planning, design, maintenance, and research services, the breadth of in-house expertise perfectly positions them to handle a wide variety of sports and urban projects.
The group is also well-renowned for its expertise in scientific research and analysis, monitoring and compliance services, which continue to operate from independent laboratory facilities across the world, with a large research facility at their headquarters in Yorkshire and sites in Queensland and Victoria, Australia.
A number of joint ventures and partnerships adds a strong presence for the Group in the Middle East, with STRI delivering the first ever turf racetrack in Saudi Arabia for the Saudi Cup in 2020. More recently, through their joint venture Aspire Sports Turf based in Qatar, delivering the design, construction supervision and maintenance supervision of all pitches for the Qatar 2022 World Cup on behalf of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy.
The group's new website, strigroup.com, showcases its end-to-end proposition and highlights completed projects across a range of sports and cities. This spans local government sports facilities such as the Blackpool Enterprise Zone through to elite stadia and tournaments including World Cups and the Wimbledon Championships, as well as urban greening and sustainable water management initiatives like Northern Bloc's blue green roof in Manchester.
