BSkyB Health & Fitness

The Sky Health and Fitness Centre building was designed to rehouse an oversubscribed gym that had been operational for over 14 years, as well as providing other new fitness facilities - underpinning Sky's commitment to the health and wellbeing of their staff. Positioned opposite a large landscaped plaza, the building takes advantage of the views across the panorama to Boston Manor and beyond. The X-LAM Alliance were appointed to provide a hybrid structure comprising glulam columns and beams together with cross laminated timber perimeter walls and floors, with visible grade timber specified for the internal exposed structural walls.

My Place Wells Park Youth Centre, Sydenham

This ambitious project; funded by the government’s MyPlace programme, which aims to create world class youth facilities across England, was driven by the engagement of local young people.  One of the key ambitions was to take a collaborative approach to bridge the gap between concept design and construction detailing and in particular to exploit the full potential of the cross laminated timber engineering opportunities. To maximise the advantages of cross laminated timber, technology required a more advanced approach to the engineering design of this specialist timber.
