Annual investment in sport and leisure has produced an expanding UK sports construction market, placing significant demands on Architects for the creation of facilities which achieve exemplary design and function.

As steadfast energy concerns face public sector facilities, sustainable design has never been more relevant. Have designers fully realised the importance of flexible sustainable solutions in the creation of new facilities? How can architects balance creativity with efficiency, when utility costs for local authority leisure centres have soared by over 40.000 Euro in the last year?

Considerable funding from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport to encourage outstanding sport architecture is eminent. Further backing from the Lottery Sports Fund strategy injects billions per year into the provision of sporting opportunities at all levels.

The Designing for Sport and Leisure conference will explore the creation of safe and flexible space for multidisciplinary use, and sustainable, inclusive design for tourism and recreational leisure facilities.

Take this exceptional opportunity to discuss the impacts of 2012 on designing structures for post-Games utilisation, and gain invaluable insights from presentations hosted by industry innovators who have achieved excellence in wet and dry facilities.

This essential event from The Architects’ Journal will allow superb networking and question and answer opportunities. A selection of expert designers, representatives from Local Authority and consultants will address the freshest innovations in UK sport and leisure and examine recent trends for the creation of manageable and flexible facilities. Essential topics to be addressed:

- Factoring the balance of play value with risk minimisation
- Pioneering design deliberation for UK swimming pools
- Regenerating London’s exciting waterfront leisure facilities
- Developing innovative tourism leisure for community use
- Creating multidisciplinary training academies to support tomorrow’s athletes
- Exploring sustainable dual purpose designs for school sports
