The frame consists of both concrete and glulam. Concrete is used for foundations and joists, among other things, while beams and posts are made of glulam. The passive house concept and environmental thinking go hand in hand, which means using materials requiring as little maintenance as possible. The façade will consist of clinker-built wood panels made of heat-treated pine. This gives a maintenance-free façade that will turn grey over the years.
The facility has several levels and will consist of:
• Two full-size sports halls, one of which will have space for 300 spectators
• Martial arts facilities
• A performing arts venue with space for an audience of 300 people
• An ice rink with space for 300 spectators
• Communal social areas with café, community kitchen, community gym, conference room, etc.
“We don’t currently have an ice rink or performing arts venue in the municipality and there is a high demand for indoor facilities. We are currently the fastest growing municipality, so this need will only increase. The central location of the facility and Knivsta’s strategic location in the Greater Stockholm area contribute to making Knivsta more attractive,” says Carina Nordlander, the recreation chief responsible for the municipality’s sport and leisure facilities, speaking to newspaper Upplands Nyheter.
