Leisure and Well Being Sports Pavilion at Winnersh Triangle
Winnersh Triangle Business Park is a thriving business community with wellbeing at its heart. Acquired by Frasers Property in 2019 it provides agile workspaces for a diverse workforce and features stunning outdoor and green spaces. Frasers wanted to enhance the leisure facilities so TG Escapes provided a new sports hub working with S&C Slatters who designed the outdoor space including allotments, a living wall and a new Gen 2 sports pitch.
Frasers wanted to invest significantly to enhance the facilities at Winnersh. Landscaping was key to providing a stunning outdoor space. However, they recognised that they needed to provide reasons for customers to get outside every day so embarked on the development of a sports hub.
The Pavilion building offers changing rooms, a treatment room, kitchen and a yoga/pilates studio. Jake Walton, Design Manager at Frasers knew they wanted a timber frame naturally clad building. He considered a number of suppliers but after visiting a joint project between TG Escapes and S&C Slatters at Holy Cross School he selected TG Escapes. The building features larch cladding and a living roof.
Why did you want to develop this additional space?
To significantly enhance our Winnersh Triangle customers’ access to leisure and well-being facilities on-site at the business park.
What made TG Escapes stand out from other providers?
We undertook a significant precedent study of off-site construction products that would meet our aspirations for the project with a product of appropriate quality and TG’s portfolio was the best fit to meet those requirements. We particularly liked the robustness of the system and the ability to have a bespoke design.
What are the biggest benefits you have noticed or are hoping for?
Immediate positive feedback from our customers at Winnersh Triangle. A massive bonus for the business park.
