The Clydebank Community Sports Hub is a new sports pavilion that will provide shared facilities for local sports clubs and community groups in the Clydebank Area. The project involves the partial demolition of the existing Clydebank Rugby Club to provide a state of the art community facility including sports pitches, gym facilities, fitness studios, committee rooms and a café.
A low energy design strategy has been applied to substantially reduce CO2 emissions beyond Building Regulation requirements, while also minimise energy consumptions and associated running costs. To achieve beyond best practice performance, a passive design strategy comprising of acoustic natural ventilation louvers, high levels of fabric thermal performance and natural daylight penetration have been applied.
Furthermore, high efficiency gas fired condensing boilers and water heaters will provide energy efficient and reliable hot water generation for the buildings numerous changing facilities and anticipated high usage.
Heat recovery mechanical ventilation will assist in reducing the buildings space heating loads while LED lighting with occupancy and daylight dimming controls will minimise the buildings power consumption.
A proposed 110m2 roof mounted PV array will provide over 19 MWh of renewable electricity per year with any surplus electricity exported to the national grid.
