The project comprised of a replacement Leisure Centre Building for the Borough of Barnet. Providing 3 no. swimming pools, fitness suite, changing facilities, with café and spectating areas. The site is located just off the A1 Great Northern Way in Allianz Park, Barnet. The building structure is predominately two storeys with some roof top plant areas. A braced steel frame was adopted. Horizontal wind girder steel bracing at the roof levels, and diaphragm action from the precast first floor transfer the wind loads to the braced bays. Steel lattice trusses have been used to span the 35m over the main pool hall. Corrosion protection of the steel trusses and steel framing in the pool area was of upmost importance due the high corrosivity category.
