    Alderley Park Leisure Centre, Cheshire, UK

    WPC Cladding Aesthetic Fins

    Project Overview

    Alderley Park Leisure Centre features Dura Cladding Composite Timber fins as part of the stunning exterior. The Composite Timber Dura Cladding fins were used as part of the main envelope system of the building and as a solar shading element to add architectural interest.

    Health and fitness facility Everybody @ Alderley Park in Cheshire designed by Pozzoni Architecture on behalf of property developers Bruntwood SciTe and featuring Dura Cladding Composite Timber fins as part of the stunning exterior is a winner of the Specifi Manchester Architecture Project of the Year 2020.

    The £4m Alderley Park Sports Complex replaced the previous 40-year-old facility and boasts a range of modern indoor and outdoor facilities, within the landscaped grounds of Alderley Park. With its simple plan and form, materials have been given special consideration to lift the design from the ordinary to the extraordinary, defining a building with a real sense of place. Taking cues from its woodland setting, the new leisure center is clad in vertical fins made from high-performance low-maintenance composite timber Dura Cladding.

    The Dura Cladding gives the building a striking and unique appearance and is offset beautifully by the gabion retaining walls, which contain recycled materials from the construction site.

    Alderley Park’s Sports Complex really breaks the mould of the traditional leisure centre. We were given a unique, off-piste brief and a stunning site to work with. From the outset, we tried to bring the feeling of being outdoors into our designs for the building. We’ve used traditional materials and sustainable materials (like the composite timber Dura Cladding) in some innovative ways, to give a fairly simplistic building a dramatic appearance and genuine curb appeal. We’re extremely satisfied with the end results.
