Designed by Faulkner Browns and constructed by Bowmer & Kirkland, the £27.5 million Arena heralds the most exciting and important changes to leisure facilities in Derby in the last 40 years. The new arena is primarily a Velodrome with space for sports and physical activity; however it also serves as a venue to host cultural events, exhibitions, product launches and conferences.
The Arena boasts an exciting range of facilities, 250m indoor cycle track, sports infield, state-of-the-art gym and fully accessible changing rooms.
FaulknerBrowns Architects specified Prospec Marathon Connect cubicles, Marathon laminate lockers, vanity units and benching throughout all of the changing areas. The contemporary colour scheme is predominantly graphite grey with accent colours of green and blue.
A spectacular curved bank of low level lockers dominates the outfield circulation area, creating both a focal point and a huge volume of storage.
