Chiltern Lifestyle Centre

The Brief

Chiltern District Council want to update a pre-existing leisure and library facility. The project will breathe life into the outdated centre, by providing a state-of-the-art leisure and community centre. 

The scheme will provide facilities such as an eight-lane twenty-five metre long swimming pool, sports hall, squash courts, community centre and library. We are supplying the structural package for BAM Construction.

Our Approach

  • This project is a 120-m long steel framed structure, predominantly single storied with different zones and functions.
  • Within this contract the need for cellular beams was apparent not only to for service integration, but they would be exposed as architectural features. This meant extra attention was paid to the design of them as well as the quality of fabrication.
  • These beams span the 25M pool area, so splicing was required for transportation purposes. This would  reduce logistical impact and cost, whilst allowing for safer handling and installation.
  • We also fabricated a steel staircase and a 1.5M-deep truss to interconnect the sports hall and pool area. Both these features allowed us to demonstrate our dedication to high-quality welding and fabrication.
