Prestigious new sporting facilities for one of the country’s top Universities.

Addition of new sports facilities to the existing, which included a hockey pitch and games area, and out-door tennis courts.  This substantial expansion presented challenges  the need to create a sense of overall cohesion, within the sports centre and as a whole, and maintaining student usage throughout the construction process within busy existing routes.

The new facilities provided are: a two-storey health and fitness centre; tensile covering to the existing out-door tennis courts; changing pavilion; spectator seating arranged around the refurbished all-weather hockey pitch (a centre-piece of the park).

The design development required a high level of analysis and collaboration, including with the University’s design studio on “branding” for the entrance.  The new Fitness Centre building is BREEAM ‘excellent’ rated.
