17 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 1: Buildings 1 Nomination Category 1: Buildings Project information Owner Worthing Borough Council Architect Wilkinson Eyre Architects General Contractor Morgan Sindall Engineering Office AECOM Location Worthing, United Kingdom Construction Period 09/2011 to 05/2013 Short description │Worthing New Pools Worthing New Pools is a landmark development on the south coast of the UK. The striking form reflects a desire to provide not just a community leisure centre, but an iconic building that will attract interest and investment to the local area. The centrepiece of the RIBA competition-winning design is the steel framed pool hall, supported by doubly curved, doubly asymmetric box-beams spanning over 50 metres. These create a flowing roof profile reminiscent of ridges in blown sand on a beach. Complex and irregular geometry combine with a mix of steel, timber and glass to create a sculpted and striking building. Clear communication of the geometry and the predicted movements at interfaces was essential to the successful delivery, and relied heavily on the use of Scia Engineer.
