UoS Centre for Sport, Health and Wellbeing
Hulley & Kirkwood were employed by The University of Strathclyde for their new state of the art Centre for Sport, Health and Wellbeing to provide mechanical and electrical design, with sustainability and energy efficiency being an integral part of the client brief.
The University of Strathclyde’s aspirations were for a low energy building and the design of the mechanical and electrical services target low carbon emission and energy reductions beyond the minimum requirements wherever practicable.
This will be assisted by connection to the new University of Strathclyde District Energy Network project. The synergy between these two projects will bring considerable benefit in reducing the energy demand of the University and will contribute to the carbon reduction of the whole campus.
The new centre will include 2 No. 4 court sports halls; 25m swimming pool with a moving floor; sauna and steam room; 180 piece fitness suite including strength and conditioning area; dance studio; 2 No. squash courts; consultation & treatment rooms; teaching rooms with bleacher seating; staff offices and student’s union accommodation.
Handover is due on 17th September 2018.
