The new sports complex, which is built around the existing velodrome and Ronnie McIntosh Athletics Stadium boasts several new facilities as well as upgrades to existing facilities. Along with a state-of-the-art sport science suite, the new Centre also features an 80 metre running straight to provide athletes with all-weather training facilities, a multi-sports hub with spectator seating, a strength and conditioning suite as well as indoor and outdoor artificial 3G grass pitches that meet World Rugby and FIFA compliance standards. The facility also features a competition standard athletics track and velodrome which help make the city of Dundee a top-class training venue.
Alongside the sports complex we've built an energy centre that will make a significant contribution to Dundee's vision of being a sustainable city and accelerate the city’s ambitions for the development of a city-wide energy network. The multi-technology energy centre design combines heat pumps, gas combined heat and power, photovoltaic solar panels, solar thermal and large thermal stores for low grade and higher-grade heat combined with gas boilers for peaks in demand and backup.
