Sacred Heart Sports Hall, Crosby, Merseyside

The new sports hall and associated teaching and dance areas have been designed to satisfy the school’s expanding curriculum.

The building has a highly efficient envelope which will reduce excessive fluctuations in temperature thereby reducing the energy required to maintain comfortable conditions. Ventilation is provided at both low level and high level inducing a stack effect to create air movement rather than relying upon mechanical means of ventilation. White facing blockwork is used externally at low level to provice a durable finish with western red cedar above to soften the overall impact of this quite large building which is set in a residential area. Coloured render to the staircase and entrance flank wall provides contrast and serves to emphasis the entrance area. Internally in the main sports hall birch faced ply is used at higher level and this together with the ceiling contains sound absorbing panels to reduce reverberation and transmission of sound beyond the hall.
