The professional rugby league club Hull Kingston Rovers (UK) has appointed Genr8 Kajima Regeneration Limited to develop the Sewell Group Craven Park Campus masterplan.

‘Hull Kingston Rovers’ stated that based in Manchester (UK), Genr8 Kajima Regeneration Limited brings regeneration, investment and development to towns and Cities across the country and have worked on some of United Kingdom’s largest regeneration projects.

Hull Kingston Rovers are a professional rugby league club based in Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire, England (UK), which competes in the Super League, the top tier of British rugby league. The club has won five league championships, and one Challenge Cup.

Craven Park (currently known as the Sewell Group Craven Park Stadium for sponsorship reasons) is a rugby league stadium located in Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, England (UK). It is the home of Hull Kingston Rovers, one of two professional rugby league teams based in the City.

Genr8 Kajima Regeneration specializes in development that creates aspirational, stimulating and sustainable environments where people spend time and communities grow and flourish.

‘Hull Kingston Rovers’ further stated that Working in Hull for the first time, the appointment is seen as a coup for not only the club, but the wider City with Genr8 Kajima Regeneration Limited priding themselves on being able to deliver solutions where others may not see opportunity.

Exulted Warwick Smither, Development Director of Genr8 Kajima Regeneration Limited, “We are delighted to partner with the club. Working with the club and local stakeholders, we aim to bring forward a major regeneration of the stadium and the adjacent land, to develop a campus feel to the area. We look forward to seeing where the journey takes us.”

Hull KR Chief Executive Paul Lakin is pleased to take another step forward with the redevelopment project and said, “We’re delighted to attract a new developer to the City of Hull, but most importantly for our vision of a campus in East Hull. There’s still some way to go before we can share visuals or put a spade into the ground. However, the appointment of Genr8 Kajima Regeneration Limited is a significant piece in the jigsaw. We are confident, in time, we can deliver something truly transformational for East Hull.”
