LEISURE & SPORTS FACILITIES PROJECT REPORT


Cardiff community sports hub helped by Gerflor


as an enjoyable leisure pursuit, and as a contributor to enhancing quality of life. Community sport centres are important to local people and bring fun, challenge and competition as well as opportunities for social interaction as part of leisure time activities. Access to sports facilities and opportunities that meet local needs positively influence the communities’ perception of their local area, particularly for children and young people. The all-new STAR Hub in Cardiff opened


S


its doors in September 2016 and now proudly sits at the heart of the Splott, Tremorfa, Adamsdown and Roath communities. This state of the art facility includes a new swimming pool with access for all users. Their spacious Health & Fitness Suite houses all- new TechnoGym equipment, including a Functional Fitness frame to allow for fun and challenging adaptation of traditional workouts. In short, it’s a haven for fitness that’s inspiring the local community to become fitter and more active. In constructing the new STAR Hub facility,


the specification of the flooring choice would be at the very top of the agenda to enable only the very best products to be used. The ultimate decision would fall to the installer CS Flooring Solutions who would specify some 320m2
