New Project Win: £28m Solent University Sports Building

New Project Win: £28m Solent University Sports Building


Designed by Morgan Sindall and their team, including Architecture PLB and Arup engineers and supported by planning consultants JL, Southampton Solent University gets a new £28 million sports building to open Summer 2019.

Architecture PLB has designed a future focused sports building for Solent University's city campus as part of the university's on-going £100 million estate development plan. 

In contrast to the the more traditional designs of this building type, the new sports building will see a modern and transparent facility that will help to express the university's educational goals, whilst showing the energy of both the students and athletic activities to general users as well as the general public and local community. 

18000 square metres of fermacell gypsum fibreboard will be installed in the three fitness studios, the health and well-being gym, a strength and conditioning gym and high quality teaching facilities and a large atrium designed to stimulate the interaction between each of the areas. There will also be two sports hall.
