SportPark, Loughborough University
SportPark, the latest office development designed by David Morley Architects at Loughborough University, is the new home for the National Governing Bodies (NGB’s) of many sports. The scheme provides an innovative office environment enabling the NGB’s to share information and produce innovative approaches to best practice.
The scheme comprises four buildings with up to five storeys linked through glazed circulation spaces. The break out areas are varied and include small scale sports facilities and an outdoor sprint track. The stream that runs through this part of the campus has been incorporated into the design and given space to flourish in order to encourage biodiversity.
With sustainability and sport at its core, SportPark has already achieved an ‘excellent’ rating from BREEAM, the global environmental assessment mark.
SportPark won two awards at the Commited to Construction in East Midlands Awards in the following categories: Committed to Excellence and Quality, and Committed to Sustainability, as well as a BCO Regional Award.
