Ayrshire Athletics Arena

Wylie Shanks Architects

Developed on a green field site on the flood plain required the diversion of a culvert and construction of riverbank protection. Extensive flood modelling was instigated initially. Designed as a public amenity the track has UKA Class A classification. External facilities allow for all traditional Track and Field events. The multipurpose building incorporates 6 team changing facilities, a 50m track, long jump pit, gym, physiotherapy, first aid treatment room and extensive storage. The internal netting allows reconfiguration for cricket/discus/javelin practice whilst the high tensile fabric roof also allows pole vault practice.
