Projects / Emirates Arena & Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome
Glasgow City Council
3DReid, in association with Sports Concepts, have designed the showpiece for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. The only completely new sports facility designed for the games provides two distinctly separate arenas under one roof. The arena and velodrome are linked by a connecting building which includes offices for the National Sport Federations.
Innovations & added value
The team has worked with specialist velodrome and athletics track designers and seating suppliers to create the most effective and flexible solution. Economies have been made in the design by combining public facilities, changing and support facilities, and building services serving the main event spaces.
