The first floor comprises gym and classroom areas, viewing gallery in the Pool Hall and external terrace area. There is a small area of second floor which houses services and the plantroom.


In terms of structure, the basement and Pool Hall are formed in waterproofed reinforced concrete, the superstructure in reinforced concrete walls and columns, and the ground and first floor of in-situ concrete slab construction. The roof over the Pool Hall comprises 2 No. 30m long glulam beams with steel purlins and pressed metal decking over.


Civil aspects of the project included detailed design of external elements including perimeter road / hardstanding, drainage and associated pumping stations to serve the proposed facility. All works took place in a live campus environment
