FaulknerBrowns out of blocks with Derby sports arena

[First look + project data] FaulknerBrowns has submitted plans for a multi-sport arena next to Pride Park Stadium in Derby

The £25 million scheme for Derby City Council features a 250m indoor cycling track, 1.5km outdoor closed-cycle circuit, gym and a ‘sports infield the size of 12 badminton courts’.

According to the practice the 5,000 seat velodrome will be raised ‘to an upper level…optimising the flexibility of the building for a range of sporting and other uses.’

A spokesman continued: ‘The dynamic shape of the cycle track is expressed externally as a sinuous, continuous skin, raised at the front to create a clear, unambiguous entrance, dramatically slashed to allow natural light to filter to the interior.’

The scheme is due to go to planning committee on 15 March 2012.
