“With the closure of the previous centre, we needed a sports hall that was temporary and not too expensive and that is exactly what we’ve got.”
Michelle Child
Manager of the Dialstone Centre

Case Study

About this job
Last year the popular Dialstone Centre in Stockport, Cheshire, was closed to make way for a new residential development and was due to be replaced by a new sports centre to be built on a neighbouring site in 2014. The time lapse between one centre closing and its replacement being built meant that the Dialstone Centre’s owners, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, had to find an alternative.

Requirement
The building needed to be large enough to ensure that residents did not have to travel elsewhere to enjoy their favourite activities, such as badminton, five-a-side football, Zumba and children’s holiday camps – or have to give them up. It also had to be built on spare land at nearby Offerton High School – which had just closed down – next door to a permanent building which offered changing rooms and a gym.

Building
We supplied a 700sqm bespoke sports hall, constructed using an anodised aluminium frame with steel-clad sandwich panel walling. Measuring 8.6m tall at the ridge, it had a semi-translucent thermo-inflated roof, heating and an adjoining 100sqm storage area.

Outcome
Michelle Child, manager of the Dialstone Centre, said: “With the closure of the previous centre, we needed a sports hall that was temporary and not too expensive and that is exactly what we’ve got. “It is very similar to the dimensions of the last sports
hall and we have seen a lot of customers from the previous centre come along and continue their sport, instead of having to go elsewhere.”
