Grove Farm Sports Pavilions, Nottingham
Sports students are benefiting from two new sport pavilions at The University of Nottingham, unusually located on a flood plain and designated green belt adjacent to the River Trent.
The university chose our innovative design owing to its ingenious use of a concrete ‘table’ to provide instant drainage in light of a flood, allowing the pavilions to remain in use at all times.
The sports pavilions are raised 1.5 metres above ground level to prevent any building damage in light of a flood. Gabion walls are used to the ‘flood storey’ and enclose the area below the finished floor level, providing retention where required. The pitched roof resists climbing and helpfully prevents balls from getting trapped during sports sessions.
The roof of pavilion A provides a location for a photovoltaic array providing a renewable energy source for the site too. Each pavilion comprises changing facilities for 22 and 18 people, changing areas for male and female officials, toilet provision, tea room, first-aid room and cleaner’s facilities.
