    14. Building Materials • The materials of the building are primarily a palette of three high quality materials: • Portland concrete panel • green copper panel • thermally broken, solar glare-reducing double glazing • It is deliberately chosen to avoid metal panelling

    15. Environmental Considerations • The building incorporates all accepted passive and sustainable technology, including rainwater harvesting, high degrees of insulation • The main athletics arena is naturally lit to reduce running cost, with lights used rarely • The auditoriums are naturally ventilated. The preferred ambient temperature of a sports centre – 16 degrees – facilitates lowest possible energy use for a building of this type
