Sports and Leisure
This is an expansion of an existing leisure centre, with the addition of a new pool facility including a 25m competition pool, separate training pool, spectator seating for 250 people, pool changing facilities, café, double height entrance foyer and reception, 500m2 of offices and eight team change rooms. The design incorporates high levels of insulation and air tightness, extensive natural daylight via rooflights and two 35m high wind turbines, part funded by the Energy Savings Trust. The turbines save 50% of the electricity costs for the new building and reduce CO2 emissions by 75 tonnes per year. Funding of £0.7m was provided by Sport Scotland.
