Package Summary: When constructing the new £35 million Hengrove Leisure Centre in Bristol, the design team decided to do something unique. To one side of the building, rather than house the cafe/ kitchen facilities in a standard box extension, they decided to create the famous “Golden Egg” edifice.
The Steel Structure was woven with steel angles to act as support for the Gold Shingle Cladding.
Through simple design and practical building products they were able to produce a stunning iconic structure.
