SPORTFIX® SPORTFIX®


components installed at


redeveloped UCC Mardyke Athletics Track E


xcessive rain water has to be removed quickly and reliably from sports fields and competition areas. The drainage channels and other


components offered by Hauraton comply with the latest standards and also meet IAAF requirements. It is essential sports facilities are designed and equipped to prevent serious injury to sports people if falls or accidents occur.


The University College Cork (UCC) has redeveloped their Mardyke Athletics Track in Cork City, Republic of Ireland. The new facility is part of a €10 million budget included a new synthetic eight lane, fully floodlit, running track built to the IAAF standard with an additional 3720 m² (40,000 ft²) added to the original arena. The arena now includes an indoor 60 metre running track, a performance analysis suite, two additional gym areas with over 140 additional pieces of the latest gym equipment and three additional fitness studios. Hauraton SPORTFIX®


drainage channels


with aluminium finishing edges were installed around the perimeter of the IAAF, 400 metre track and along its straight. A steeple chase water jump kit was also installed plus Hauraton SPORTFIX®

soft edging were installed around the long jump pit. Tim Connolly, Managing Director of Hauraton Limited points out, “Our SPORT-


FIX® range offers products that not only meet

Roofing with extremely long wooden elements for an indoor swimming pool


the Sports Centre Cents in Luxembourg. The ceiling was built using extremely long wooden elements, extending up to 23.75 metres. This enabled the long-spans and the attractive design of the roof. The key for making this possible was using fast, light and green Kerto LVL (laminated veneer lumber) products produced by Metsä Wood. The suspended floating wooden ceiling was structured with slim ribs and an above average web height. The structural design and calculations were done by Knippers Helbig engineers and the implementation was carried out by the wood construction company Holzbau Amann. Use of Metsä Wood’s Kerto®

long spans to create the large spatial volume. The dimensional stability of the Kerto LVL web was a great advantage here. The structure was produced using the Kerto LVL web with a height of 1.1 metres and a thickness of only 75 millimetres. Hendrik Pfeffinger, the project manager at Holzbau Amann, explains “We went beyond standards for the ratio of thickness and the height of the beams, so special solutions had to be established which would on the one hand meet the requirements of Knippers Helbig, while conforming to the structural analyses and approvals in Luxembourg.” For the implementation of these slim dimensions, the Q-panels were virtually predestined for the job thanks to their high load-bearing capacity. The wooden roof elements were prefabricated at Holzbau Amann’s factory and delivered by extra-long trucks to the construction site. Although the elements are almost 24 metres in length, their installation


was quick and required only two carpenters on site. The end faces were finished off with end panels to finalise the appearance of the roof.
