Over 5,000m2 of Kalzip stucco-embossed, aluminium, standing seam roofing has been used on the new £24m Olympic-sized swimming pool complex at Cardiff Bay’s International Sports Village.
Teamkal contractor Central Roofing South Wales installed all the roofing sheets together with Kalzip perforated liners and fabricated gutters.
The mono-pitched roof rises from 7m to 18m. Sports and leisure specialist S&P Architects said it specified the roofing for its light weight, attractive appearance, quality and performance in an environment that is wet both inside and out. The section of the building creates a huge single plane roof area. Appearance was important as the building is visible from up to four miles away.
The roof rises over a flume tower which is the centrepiece of a science-themed water park that complements the competition pool and warm up pool.
