GDL completes installation at Middlesbrough Sports Village

GDL secured the contract to design, manufacture and install 16 Intelivent Solarstore Natural Ventilation Units at the £18m iconic state of the art sports facility in Middlesborough.

Its units sustainably ventilate the sports halls using solar power to increase the ventilation rate by over 75% – a system that is particularly effective in summer and times of high occupancy.

GDL also designed and supplied the Brise Soleil System to the main entrance of the sports facility. The bespoke 200mm-deep bladed system provides shading to the glazed wall of the building. The length of the blades was longer than the standard maximum, and therefore a unique blade taking into consideration deflection and possible wind and snow loadings was designed. GDL also supplied a frameless louvre screen and double louvred doors on the ground floor to the plant area. The bespoke louvres were designed to allow for a larger opening through the plant room doors.
