Olympic legacy on track in Derby

Posted on by in News

nDerbyOct13The steelwork erection for the Derby Multi-sports Arena, one of the first Olympics legacy projects to get underway since the Games, is due to be completed this month.

Using more than 700t of steel, the three-storey frame will house a main sports hall at ground level, an indoor cycling track on the first floor, fitness studios and offices on the second level, with plant and meeting rooms on the uppermost floor.

Working on behalf of main contractor Bowmer and Kirkland, Billington Structures has fabricated, supplied and erected the steelwork as well as installing stairs and terracing units.

The project is aiming to achieve a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014.
