The Clydebank Community Sports Hub is a new sports pavilion that provides shared facilities for local sports clubs and community groups in the Clydebank Area. The project involved 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 was 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 were applied.
Furthermore, high efficiency gas fired condensing boilers and water heaters provide energy efficient and reliable hot water generation for the buildings numerous changing facilities and anticipated high usage.
Heat recovery mechanical ventilation assists in reducing the buildings space heating loads while LED lighting with occupancy and daylight dimming controls minimise the buildings power consumption.
