Sports Halls & Recreation Buildings

Specialists in Sports Building Design and Engineered Fabric Buildings

Shasde Sculpture are specialise in sports building design and engineered fabric buildings.Our range of steel and aluminium framed tensile membrane buildings and sports halls offer even greater clear span access than that of traditional aluminium warehousing. With in-depth knowledge of Sport England fabric buildings specifications at Shade Sculpture we are able to design, engineer, manufacture and install bespoke state of the art sports facilities that comply with all UK governing sports directives.

Steel Frame Verses Aluminium Frame Fabric Sports Halls

With the use of steel framing, it is possible for us to design a tensioned fabric building to incorporate additional loadings, such as gantry cranes, heating & ventilation, air-conditioning and lighting systems. Buildings can then be clad with high grade fabrics, including Lacquered PVC Coated Polyester  which helps impede pollution degradation and dirt build-up. Fabrics such as these may cost more at the outset but increase the membrane’s lifespan considerably, outweighing the initial investment over the structures operational lifespan.   With the additional of internal wall membranes ‘and or’ heating and ventilation systems, buildings can also be designed to meet and comply with specific U-Values which the project and client requires.

Benefits of Tensioned Fabric Buildings & Shelters – With tensioned fabric buildings fast becoming the most economical solution for any sports arena, more and more schools, clubs and commercial clients are turning to these buildings, not only for the initial procurement cost savings but also for their reduced operating costs. Other positives reasons include:

  • Reduced Planning Application Requirements.
  • Prefabrication off Site – Less Construction Traffic & Interruption.
  • Rapid Erection & Installation.
  • Minimum Ground Works.
  • Improved Environmental Credentials.

Design & Engineering – With full in-house design and engineering capabilities’ we are able to develop a fabric clad ‘engineered building’ to meet exacting dimensions, providing extraordinary clearances for your sporting or multi-purpose venue needs. As with all our tensile architectural buildings, structures are engineered in accordance to European Design Guide for Surface Tensile Structures, together with Wind and Snow loading calculation for the installation site. This ensures we provide not only some of the most stylish and cost effective Tensioned Fabric Buildings, but also some of the safest constructions possible. With no internal columns to impede the facility, our Tensile Sports Barns & Tensioned Fabric Buildings offer maximum usable space whilst providing increase square footage, greater than that of traditional buildings which would typically occupying a similar footprint.

Additional applications include warehousing, production halls, market halls, even Football and Rugby practice grounds. Our engineered building systems offer a rapid installation and construction method, increased operation lifespan, lowing operational and maintenance costs, whilst providing award winning design and all year round facilities.
