Foundation of Light, Sunderland
To advise on, supply and install a range of equipment for the Beacon of Light
This project was to install a large array of sports equipment across five floors of Northumberland’s iconic Beacon of Light centre.
The Beacon of Light is Sunderland’s most innovative sports and education facility and the first of its kind in the UK. It features five storeys of sports halls, football pitches, informal learning spaces and state-of-the-art education suites designed to facilitate four interactive zones — Education, Health and Wellbeing, Sport and Play, and World of Work. These areas have been carefully designed to deal with the region’s biggest challenges, and will create life-changing opportunities for local people to re-energise their communities.
MH Goals were brought in to advise on and supply a range of equipment suitable for the centre’s new outdoor 3G pitches, rooftop synthetic pitch and substantial sports hall. The installation included 28 self-weighted and freestanding football goals, 24 badminton posts and six international netball posts with padding. The centre will be used by both professional and amateur sports clubs as well as the general public, with all products provided needing to be hard wearing and durable for constant everyday use.
