Daylight Building in the UK

Bright and inviting recreational building

This 180m² multi-use games area allows patients at Fairfield Hospital, Bury, Greater Manchester, UK, to exercise year-round as part of their therapy, despite the unpredictability of the weather. Even on cloudy or rainy days, this recreational building is bright and inviting in all seasons.

In co-operation with Norseman Structures Ltd, Astron provided an elegant combination of fabric and steel framework. The fabric cover terminates at a height of 3m all around the building, with sports fencing below. This concept provides a natural, enclosed atmosphere for its users.

All steps of the execution, from the design stage until completion, were managed like clockwork. Despite the very limited access around the building, Alpha Steel Ltd carried out the installation within a period of 4 days ensuring minimal disruption, as well as a timely handover.
