Rubb completes new sports hub of Paignton Sports College “the size of four normal sports halls” to accommodate all lessons and activities.
The 42m x 69m BVE community multi sports building, with 7.5m sidewalls, can cater for a wide variety of sports including badminton, netball, basketball, tennis, football, trampolining and hockey. It can be converted to accommodate 12 badminton courts, eight basketball courts, three five-a-side pitches, eight volleyball courts or four tennis courts. The layout is interchangeable.
Paignton Sports College hall features steel clad sidewalls for added security, sidewall gutters for surface water drainage, a ventilation system which provides three-and-a-half air changes per hour, and in a first for the company, an internal lift shaft accessible via a bridge from the car park.
The translucent roof provides a natural light and airy atmosphere and the sports hall also boasts Rubb’s signature hot dip galvanized steel frame and PVDF coated fabric membrane.
“Our Sports College PE department is buzzing at a new heightened level, we now have a multi sports hub the size of four normal sports halls completed for us by Rubb. The Hub has dramatically increased the quality of teaching and learning within PE lessons, furthered our extra curricular provision and it provides a quality facility for hundreds of people from the local community every night. It has been phenomenal and the Rubb Sports Hub has made a massive impact on our pupils, staff and local community.” David Carpenter | Paignton Community and Sports College Head of PE
