O’Connor Sutton Cronin was the appointed Civil and Structural Engineers acting on behalf of the Main Contractor who was successful in the tender Bid. The structure of the sports hall consisted of a lightweight roof supported by steel trusses supported by reinforced concrete columns on the grid with block infill panels between. A 3.5 m high glazing strip was provided to four sides of the sports hall at a high level.

  • The sports hall consisted of a 33m x 26m x 12m high structure to facilitate a range of indoor sports and recreation events. The projects were procured under the Capital Works Management Framework as design Build Contracts.  The first floor consisted of precast units with structural screed supported by slimflor steel beams spanning onto load-bearing masonry walls.
