Architects: David Morley Structural Engineers: Anthony Hunt Associates 5,000m² Structural Liner Tray

This recently built facility by David Morley Architects is a specially designed indoor running track combined with a netball hall. The project was managed by C2C and invited AHA to design the curved structure, who in turn asked PDA to provide a stressed skin roof lining on a 6 metre grid. This consisted of a deep structural liner tray, which was face perforated and coated white in PVF2, complete with a hidden internal support system to carry the electrics, heater piping and sign support to give an uninterrupted view down the length of the running track. The two buildings totalled 170 metres in length by 24 metres wide.
