This complex curved structure was achieved using the flexibility of Polarwall construction.
The challenge was to find a building method capable of delivering the unusual shaped layout and a robustness of structure necessary for this type of multi- use building.
Using Modern Methods of Construction we were able to meet the architectural requirements of the different radial dimensions, whilst achieving high levels of insulation and stability.
The centre includes a multi-use foyer,
hall with sprung floor, family room, two meeting rooms, a youth wing, kitchen and general facilities.
