World of Football

Edinburgh

CLIENT: Marcos Leisure

SECTOR: All, Hotel & Leisure

STATUS: Complete

Looking to build on the recognised success of the World of Football complex, our client Marcos Leisure limited asked us to investigate potential satellite sites around the city and, following a few site options we prepared, they rested on the Marine Drive site.

Trying to avoid a bonded warehouse structure the client wanted to explore modern building types and the decision was made to utilise a tensile fabric on portal frame more commonly found in North America for various agricultural purposes. This created a series of clear span barrel vaulted structures perfectly housing 6 all-weather artificial grass pitches which, combined with various internal alterations to the existing pavilion to provide the necessary changing and welfare facilities and the additional open outdoor pitches, provided a first class football facility which was completed in 2018.
