Challenge

Bryanston School in Dorset invested in a new extension to its indoor sports centre with the aim of creating three new elite performance areas:

  • a 40m-sprint track conforming to IAAF standards
  • an EN14904 (the European standard for sports floors) compliant sports hall
  • an elite-level strength and conditioning area.

Work undertaken

The school appointed UK-based sports and fitness flooring specialist TVS Group to provide a full solution for all three areas.

According to Andy Roberts, Sales Director at TVS, the most intricate aspect of the project was the installation of the 40m-sprint track. “The three-lane athletics track presented a unique challenge,” he says. “The system had to conform to IAAF standards and take a running spike, as well as, meet the strength and conditioning flooring at the same floor height and match the colour scheme of the sports hall. Force plates were also to be installed at a point below the track and this added another level of complexity to the project.”

“We decided to use our TVS SW 1200 sandwich system, which conforms to IAAF standards. This system is installed using our TVS prefabricated elastic layer, poured in polyurethane binder and an EPDM granulate spread over the top. As part of the works the school constructed the concrete slab work in order to ensure the athletics track, hallways and strength and conditioning areas all meet at the exact same height.”

Strength and conditioning area

In the strength and conditioning area TVS installed T40 Sportec Style Tiles, a 40mm-thick, interlocking, heavy-duty rubber gym tile. These tiles are manufactured specifically to cater to heavy weight-lifting activities. Despite the irregular shaped room – and the IAAF track running in at an acute angle – the tiles were all installed in one day to create a large open plan free weights area.

Sports hall

For the sports hall, TVS utilised a seamless, polyurethane, point elastic system, incorporating a four-layer build to ensure a level surface with performance characteristics suitable for multi-sport use. TVS also identified and rectified damp and level issues in the structural sub-base by installing a damp-proof membrane, as well as a self-levelling screed to the sporting areas.
