  • Royal Grammar School – New Pool/Sports Block

    TGA were engaged by our long standing Client, the Royal Grammar School in Newcastle to work as part of a traditional design team to design the M&E services for the new £5.75m Sports and Pool block at the school.

    Project Summary


    Shortlisted for Design through innovation - RICS Awards 2016

    The project was completed in the summer of 2015.

    The facilities within the New Sports Block include:

    • A traditional 6 lane, 25m swimming pool with spectator gantry, lane timing system and interactive teaching / coaching aids
    • Wet and dry communal, staff and referee changing areas
    • A 33 x 18m multi-purpose sports hall and associated sports equipment stores
    • Weights and fitness rooms
    • A performance / dance studio
    • Staff office and reception facilities
    • External spectator gantry overlooking the external sports area
    • External car parking

    The building services include a ground source heat pump installation which is used to supply thermal energy to an underfloor heating system covering the wet and dry changing areas.

    The underground pipework array for this system was installed under the school’s all weather sports pitches as part of an earlier project in which we were also engaged.

    The project also utilises LED lighting with intelligent lighting controls throughout, networked IT system, fire alarm, access control and CCTV / electronic security systems.

    The sports hall has roof mounted wind catchers providing natural ventilation to offset internal heat gains produced when used for sports activities.
