Barn Elms Sports Centre
The new Barn Elms Sports Centre is located on a 52 acres field dedicated to the practice of various sports and activities.
The building is formed by two modules; the first, with an area of 620m2, includes office, reception, storage room, café, kitchen, toilets, changing rooms and a plant room on the ground floor; and a second office on the first floor over the reception. The second module is a 120m2 gym and is connected to the main building with a canopy link. A canopy surrounds the building along the west and south elevations.
The steel framed building sits on a concrete slab and is wrapped in cedar and black composite cladding. The windows are aluminium tilt and turn windows; and the external doors are glazed aluminium and steel doors are fitted to the changing rooms.
Kent Structures were the principal lead designer as well as the main build contractor. The project ran from September 2017 to April 2019.
