Dunham-Bush worked with consultant Arup, to provide a heating solution for the arena and running track adjacent to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow.
Following on from the £14bn boost to the UK economy from Londons 2012 Olympic Games, the 2014 Commonwealth Games has given Great Britain another chance to showcase its sporting achievements to the rest of the world.
With this in mind, a new venue was opened in 2012 ahead of the Commonwealth Games and named after the UKs most successful gold-medal winning Olympian, Sir Chris Hoy. Adjacent to the velodrome is a 250 metre indoor track with capacity of 2,500, expanding to 4,500 temporary seating during the Games. To provide comfortable conditions for both competing athletes and spectators during the Games, Dunham-Bush Ltd supplied air conditioning solutions to the indoor track.
Specialist in the design and build of temperature control equipment, Dunham-Bush worked with consultant Arup, to provide a total of 0.5km of Dunham-Strip radiant panels, 25 metres of Dunham-Bush Evolution Radiant Panels, 50 metres of curved Hydrocourse Trench Heating, and 50 Dunham-Bush Cougar 180mm deep fan coil units to the arena, admin, press and hospitality areas.
