Dundee Regional Performance Centre for Sport

Here are a few construction photos of Dundee Regional Performance Centre for Sport.

Dundee Regional Performance Centre

Dundee Regional Performance Centre for Sport was built in the southeast corner of Caird Park in Dundee. Balfour Beatty built the centre adjacent to the existing facilities.

The total cost of development was £32 million. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon officially opened the centre on the 26th of February 2020. As well as the sports hall and indoor and outdoor football/rugby pitches, the centre includes an 80 Metre running track and a fitness suite. They resurfaced the existing running track and upgraded the cycling velodrome.
