I have worked with Engenuiti since their formation and continue to employ them and recommend them to clients. Their enthusiasm for new challenges makes them fun to have on projects. I look forward to working with them in the future. Peter Curtis – Hadron Consulting

We designed an iconic new centre for Scottish sport, including an asymmetric steel arched roof clad in tensioned PVC that is based on the angle and trajectory of Roberto Carlos’ goal against France in 1997 that encloses the full size indoor pitches.

The new structures also sit delicately around an existing listed garden wall that is a key feature in the scheme creating an internal street and natural break between the elite and public sport facilities.
