Our long-lasting structures offer a superior performance space for all sports, from cricket, swimming, tennis and golf to netball, basketball, rugby, football and even athletics. So whether you need a multi-activity sports hall or dedicated sports facilities, like the award-winning Indoor Cricket and Indoor Golf centres we built for Millfield School, we can provide what you are looking for with up to 40 per cent cheaper capital costs than traditional builds.
Using patented technology, our insulated tensioned membrane buildings are a viable solution for schools, colleges and universities looking for sustainable and cost-effective sports facilities. They are significantly quicker to construct than traditional sports buildings – a 1,000m2 insulated structure is typically erected in just 35 days, irrespective of weather conditions, massively reducing overall project build time, cost, disruption and risk.
Maintenance costs are kept to the minimum too. No repainting, guttering or roof repairs are required for the lifecycle of the building – a simple clean of the membrane with water and a soft industrial brush every two years is all that’s needed to keep our sports structures performing to the highest of standards.
Meeting Sport England standards, our structures feature vast clear-span interiors, generous roof heights and translucent daylight panels that flood the space with natural light to provide the ideal playing environment for both training and competitions.
With many schools aiming to be carbon neutral by 2030, Paragon structures can help contribute to reaching this vital milestone. Our sports buildings are made with environmentally-friendly materials including an aluminium frame, which is 100% recyclable, and formaldehyde-free glass fibre insulation comprising a minimum of 25% recycled material. The membrane materials can also be recycled. Our structures minimise waste to landfill due to reduced foundations and prefabrication and result in low construction site traffic. They have also achieved a BREEAM rating of Excellent.
Lightweight and durable, our structures are built to withstand extreme weather conditions, including hurricane strength winds and heavy snow loads. They are also flame retardant and comply with all British building standards and safety regulations. They feature a thick, uniform layer of insulation from the base of the walls to the apex of the roof. This insulation, combined with the airtightness of the membrane design, which is 10 times better than building regulations limits, create a highly thermally efficient building to significantly reduce running costs.
We provide a full turnkey solution. Working with you throughout the process, our experienced team provides a full design specification and quality assurance to tailor the facility to your needs. You can customise your sports facility with a wide variety of exterior wall options, colours and graphics for a building that is entirely unique.
With a 25-year, pro-rata guarantee on exterior membranes and a military-grade aluminium substructure that is guaranteed rust-proof for 50 years, our versatile sports structures are designed to perform for your staff, students and the wider community for decades.
