Leisure case study, Celsius®
The Manchester BMX Stadium was built alongside the Manchester Velodrome and provides a major contribution to the city’s successful National Cycling Centre.
The striking BMX Stadium design incorporates an asymmetrically curved roof with an 80 metre clear span. The roof primary structure comprises an intricate series of 3.75 metre deep steel lattices. Tata Steel Celsius® 355 Hollow Section is used in the roof structure and in other new infrastructure at the site.
