Glasgow City Council

Project description

3DReid, in association with Sports Concepts, designed the showpiece for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. The Emirates Arena & Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome is 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.

3DReid also provided Interior Design services for all operational areas of the building. In addition to finishes and colour schemes for the main Sports Arena, Sports Hall, Velodrome and associated facilities, the team designed the interiors for the Main Concourse, Main Reception and Café, Community Sports facilities including Dance Studios, Fitness Suite, Treatment Rooms, Spa Complex, Conditioning Suite, Physiotherapy, Doping Control, elite athlete and team changing rooms, Event Management, Judging and Press facilities and the Function Suite.

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.
