Copenhagen municipality has appointed consultancy firm WSP as technical advisor for their sports facilities. The contract will run for two years with an option to extend it by two 12-month periods.

The agreement follows a political desire to establish more sports facilities in the Danish capital to meet the great need of the citizens of the municipality.

“WSP has extensive experience in advising on artificial grass pitches and sports facilities and has been involved in the majority of super league stadiums as well as more than 100 artificial grass pitches in Denmark,” said WSP market and project manager Carsten Sigvert in a press release.

“Now we are looking forward to a good collaboration and we are delighted to be able to contribute to even more people having the opportunity to practise sports in their spare time. We have a strong focus on ensuring that as many people as possible can benefit from the new facilities.”

Latest knowledge

The framework agreement includes total technical advice regarding the establishment of the new facilities. The contract is worth DKK 15 million (approximately 1.2 million euros), with the possibility of expansion to DKK 25 million.

The company’s ambition is to include the latest knowledge in the projects, so that as many people as possible can benefit from the new facilities, while at the same time taking the environment into account as much as possible.

The first two artificial grass projects in Kløvermarken and Emdrup will begin at the end of August 2022. WSP expects these pitches to be ready for use over the summer of 2023.
