Shooting and Paralympic Archery venue
The temporary venue in south-east London will host the Shooting and Paralympic Shooting competitions, in addition to Paralympic Archery.
The contractor for the three enclosed ranges and three open-air ranges is Hertfordshire-based John Sisk & Sons, with the venue set to be completed ahead of international shooting test events next spring.
The foundations of the venue will soon start to be laid. Removable steel piles will be driven into the ground, with reused pipeline incorporated to reduce the need for new materials. The result is that the buildings will touch the ground much more lightly than if the venue was conventionally built.
The structures that make up the range buildings include the spectator’s enclosure and the field of play enclosure.
Spectator’s enclosures: These lightweight tented structures have vibrantly coloured openings to breakup the façade and provide natural ventilation, light and a tension to the external skin. The enclosures’ main structures, which are rented and can be demounted after the Games, are made from steel trusses, with secondary steelwork creating the openings by providing support for the fabric cladding to be tensioned across.
Field of play enclosures: These are constructed using a steelwork column structure clad with plywood.
