Pavilion and first class wicket along with a smaller training wicket for the relocated Stirling County Cricket Club
The club house is a single storey rectangular building, asymmetrical along both of its main axes, a geometry emphasised by the distinctive from of the roof.
The simple rectangular floor plate enables all the accommodation to be placed along the external walls ensuring that all rooms have plenty of natural light and ventilation, minimising the requirements for mechanical ventilation and the use of artificial lights.
The clubroom is orientated to provide the best visual aspect onto the wickets that can be seen through glazed walls. A timber veranda extends from the clubroom and changing rooms providing an external covered area.
Deep eaves protect the clerestory windows that are fixed at high level in each of the buildings smaller internal spaces, with views from the clubroom enhanced by the full height glazing to the two sides that address the pitches.
The ground has been built to conform to the requirements of Cricket Scotland, with an accessible, a dedicated female and an umpires changing room, to ensure that facilities would be able to support not only first class cricket games but also potential international games.
