Slough Borough Council is investing more than £62million in regenerating leisure facilities across the borough with a view to getting more people, more active, more often.
As part of this major programme, the refurbishment of Slough Ice Arena was undertaken by Slough Urban Renewal (SUR), a partnership between Slough Borough Council and Morgan Sindall Investments Ltd, which is driving regeneration across the town including leisure, housing, community and school buildings. Morgan Sindall Plc carried out the main construction of the project.
The Ice Arena has undergone substantial re-modelling with Morgan Sindall . The brand new extended ice facility and new climbing centre designed by leading architect practice GT3 was revealed in April 2018, and has since welcomed over 42,000 visitors; both residents of, and visitors to the borough alike.
A significant aspect to the project was the renovation of the arena’s façade, transforming it into a stunning timber clad surface that would stand the test of time. High performance sustainable wood product Accoya was specified by GT3 as the material of choice for the cladding due to its superior performance, reduced maintenance requirements and aesthetic properties.
Vincent Timber supplied over 250sqm of Accoya for the project, and expert roofing and cladding company Angus Roofing Contractors refurbished the existing roof and clad the new elevations.
