The 2010 opening of the new facilities will see the pool hall, complete with landmark barrel rooflight restored to its former glory, with six swimming lanes replacing four, new state-of-the-art changing facilities created and an extended fitness suite added. SIG Design &Technology worked with the clients to deliver a bespoke roofing solution.
It features Rhepanol fk from FDT to meet the councils stringent environmental criteria, complemented with vapour barrier, cut-to-falls tapered insulation developed by SIG as a one-piece design, 200 linear metres of maintenance walkways and a full man-safe cable system. Mansfield District Council architect Steve Melhuish said: D & Ts guarantee overcomes the design risk associated with the compatibility and interface between different components and elements of the roof build up.
