Sport and Leisure
An ideal sector for the use of Hybrid Structures, most modern sporting facilities incorporate a swimming pool, a fitness suite and a dance studio alongside the traditional sportshall. These types of developments lend themselves very well to open structure with aesthetic solutions where a geodesic design element combined with a wide span are well catered for by the hybrid combination of glulam and steel.
We have many examples of these types of projects that have delivered outstanding construction results, with excellent green credentials.

The optimised hybrid structure forms the Subtropical Swimming Paradise at Center Parcs, Woburn Forest.
Whether it is a workout or family swim - improved recreational facilities assist in bringing communities together by offering opportunities to improve fitness, for a healthier lifestyle. The doors opened to a brand new leisure centre and sports facility in early 2016, to replace the ageing Flitwick Leisure Centre.
