Perdiswell Leisure & Swimming Centre, Worcester

Perdiswell 

Specification

This project now delivers enhanced Leisure and Swimming facilities to the local community.

A fully Adhered Single Ply system was specified to provide penetration free weathering to the Roof, this was essential given the high humidity Swimming Pool environment.
In addition, several further measures were adopted to avoid risks associated with this aggressive environment, these measures included a perforated aluminium Structural Deck rather than steel, a high performance self adhesive bituminous Vapour Control Layer & two seperate lines of air sealing to roof parapets.

The original Wall Cladding specification was Timber Rainscreen fixed over blockwork, Britannia suggested program and cost benefits to switching the Wall construction to lightweight Steel Framing System (SFS).
This alternative specification was adopted & Britannia were contracted to design, supply and install an SFS system to all elevations.
The facade was completed with the use of Kingspan Rainscreen Insulation and Trespa high pressure laminate Rainscreen boards.
The rather striking and geometrically challenging canopy completed the effect, this was clad in bespoke aluminium secret fix planks & finished with a curved & welded aluminium Bullnose Fascia.
