Section II: Object
Sports Facility Redevelopment.
Redevelopment of Sports Facility incorporating asbestos removal, demolition, reconfiguration, remodelling and new build elements, cira 6,064sqM with associated external works and landscaping.
The Sports Facility Redevelopment project will include a blend of refresh / repurposing some of the existing facility and selective demolition / new build construction. The redevelopment will establish a facility with a presence, reflective of its location on the entry approach to the campus, offer an obvious and welcoming arrival to participants of sport at all levels, and promote social and other activities. The facility will provide a visible declaration that sport is integral to life at the University of Stirling.
The proposed facility totalling circa 6 064 m2 floor area will include (but is not limited to) the following enhanced/new facilities:
— New entrance and reception,
— Social space (café),
— Activity on entry (window in to studio),
— Studios (fitness, indoor cycling, yoga, TRX and other classes),
— Fitness Theatre (CV equipment and conditioning/stretching space),
— Strength & Conditioning Suite (allocated adequate space to reflect the current emphasis on this type of training),
— Performance Gym (link with Institute for Sport and University Performance Sport Programme),
— New Sports Hall,
— Indoor Sprint straight,
— Sports Science Lab (link with Institute and delivery of our own Sports Science service across club and recreational levels),
— Spectator space,
— Connectivity between current buildings (swimming pool) and link with natural environment (loch and surroundings).
The project will be delivered through a 2-stage Design and Build procurement route with the design team key disciplines being novated to the Principal Contractor at the end of the second stage procurement. The University requires a Principal Contractor with the expertise and track record in the development and delivery of outstanding sporting facilities to advise and deliver the optimum redevelopment solution from the technical design stage to successful project completion and facility use.
The project may be delivered in a phased manner, allowing for sectional completion to facilitate the migration of staff and students from other buildings. The works must be fully coordinated to minimise disruption.
The Principal Contractor must work collaboratively with other partner projects who may be working at the same time on the University campus, and must be able to demonstrate a robust understanding and experience of working with challenging existing buildings on a busy live operational campus.
The team for the project will include:
PM and Principal Designer — Faithful+Gould,
Architect — FaulknerBrown,
M&E Engineer — Harley Haddow,
Cost Consultant — Brownriggs,
Fire Engineer — Buro Happold,
Structural Engineer — Woolgar Hunter,
Landscape Engineer — IWA (tbc).
