Lakesmere was appointed by BAM Construction to install the rainscreen cladding package of the new Community Sports Hub at Linwood Sports Centre. The new Hub, known locally as On-X Linwood, is located within the grounds of the existing sports centre and forms part of Renfrewshire Council’s ambitious ‘Building Better Communities’ regeneration programme.

The cladding package featured Kingspan Trespa and Evolution panels, with some panels installed diagonally. Great care therefore had be taken with regards to the orientation of the fixed points and extensive planning at the pre-design stage was vital in ensuring the accurate installation of these panels prior to work commencing on site. The specification of Benchmark Trespa on Karrier panel enabled Lakesmere to achieve wind and weather tightness very early. Not only did this provides numerous advantages in terms of speed of installation but also provided wider benefits for the project as a whole as it allowed the internal finishes to be completed sooner.

The project also incorporates a fin wall which runs the length of the building and which is an example of Lakesmere’s exceptional geometric design skills.
