John Paul Construction have teamed up with local Waterford club, Park Rangers AFC to support the future progression of the community football hub.
With an existing infrastructural connection to Waterford, having built the Ferrybank Shopping Centre in 2009 and developing the Basuch and Lomb FCE Project and Area 9 Expansion, completed this year, this time the company returns to “pitch” in to support local community resources.
John Paul Construction have been working with Park Rangers Football Club, one of the county’s fastest growing soccer clubs, as part of its community development programme since September 2020. Their contribution will go towards the development of a new entrance way, flagpoles, and landscaping on the football grounds. The construction specialists will also use their expertise to advise the football club throughout the upgrades.
