Galvanized steel keeps leisure centre on track
More than 200t of galvanized structural steel was required for the construction of the Glass Mill Leisure Centre, which forms part of the wider Loampit Vale regeneration scheme.
The leisure facility is situated on the bottom three floors of a 27-storey apartment building. Galvanizing was required on various areas of the competition swimming pool, including various beams and columns, 26m roof trusses, sloping tubular columns, and curved tubes that forms a Brise Soleil façade.
Alan Stone, Production Manager at Graham Wood Structural, explained: “This was a fantastic project to work on, as it has seen the creation of an eye-catching and unusual sports centre, where local people can enjoy its facilities.”
