CORRUGATING THE CURRICULUM

A great example of installed sinusoidal profile can be seen at Glamorgan Sport Park. Corrugated profiles used to be synonymous with sheds and old industrial buildings. With the move towards trapezoidal profiles the undulating curves of sinusoidal roofing and cladding fell out of favour. But recent years have seen resurgence in their use, often with great visual effect as part of a modern building envelope. The new £3.7m state-of-the-art coaching and performance development Centre at Glamorgan Sport Park, Wales, is one such building that takes full advantage of this attractive cladding option in Silver Colorcoat Prisma®. It is also the first sports centre in the UK to receive a BREEAM excellent rating for its facilities.

Glamorgan Sport Park is the home of outdoor sports students at Glamorgan University. The site covers an impressive 30 acres, which includes indoor and outdoor facilities that are regularly used by professional teams, including Cardiff City FC, Cardiff Blues Rugby Academies and the Welsh Rugby Union as part of their elite coach education programme. It has also been used by various professional teams including the British and Irish Lions and the Australian, New Zealand and South African national rugby teams.
