ACOUSTIC ROOF DECK SOLUTION FOR £16M SPORTS FACILITY

Raised Floor Solutions has supplied and installed 3,600m 2 of Joris Ide structural metal roof deck for the construction of a new £16 million state-of-the-art sports facility in Hull.

Raised Floor Solutions was contracted to supply and install Joris Ide 100mm and 137mm deep structural deck in a 1.0 mm profile web perforated and pre-painted.

Perforated roof deck was specified for the build and is used in buildings where sound
absorption is a consideration. Depending on the level of acoustic absorption required,
structural roof deck is perforated in full, pan or web, with the latter being the most
frequently specified.

Located to the north of the city and part of the University of Hull’s expanding Cottingham
Road campus, the new facility is the largest of its kind in the region.

The project was one of the outcomes of Hull University’s ‘Strategy for Sport’ analysis; a
comprehensive study undertaken to shape it’s vision and mission up to 2020. It confirms the
establishment’s commitment to sport and active recreation at all levels. The study identified
that the existing sports facility could not meet the University’s future plans and was,
therefore, not fit for purpose.

The new facility offers a 12 court competition standard sports hall with seating for 750
spectators, a 30 station strength and conditioning gym plus changing and support facilities in
a separate pavilion. The new facility also provides a new 3G rugby pitch, the only one of it’s
kind in the region.

Up to £750k of funding towards the new development was awarded by the FA and Premier
Leagues Facilities Fund (£500k) and the Rugby Football Union (£250k).
