CONSTRUCTION OF A TEMPERATE INDOOR BOWLS PITCH

SMC2 proposes a cost effective and environmentally friendly concept: temperate bowls pitches at up to 12°C.
Temperate bowls pitches to 12°C are built using single or double wall textile covers.

Thermal comfort is provided by gas radiant panels combined with an exclusive SMC2 air handling system.

 

SMC2 bowls pitches with a textile cover are a real alternative to the construction of a traditional bowls pitch. It is a sports building that is well thought out in environmental and financial terms. Its design follows an environmentally friendly approach, as evidenced by the timber selected from sustainably managed forests.

TECHNICALLY

The design of a temperate bowls pitch is based on high environmental and architectural quality: it combines a glue-laminated timber frame with a translucent textile membrane roof.
Our textile membrane roofs have a 17 year guarantee. Their curved shapes inspired by the world’s major sports facilities are intemporal.
The air handling and double-walled roof provide thermal comfort without any risk of condensation.

FINANCIALLY

Temperate bowls pitches are an up to 50 % cheaper investment than bowls pitches heated to 16°C. Using these savings, local authorities can also build a clubhouse that contributes to the club’s quality of life and its activities. Our timber frame clubhouses are compliant with the French RT2012 standard and are high environmental quality.

ECOLOGICALLY

Our optimised building systems using textile membranes combined with a rational use of energy to regulate building temperatures make it possible to build a structure with a very low investment and operational environmental impact. Our structures have a life cycle analysis that validates the environmental performance of our techniques.

Building a temperate bowls pitch is a smart way to control your budgets and protect our planet.

The facades are studied jointly with the architects to allow the structure to merge perfectly into its context and its site with compositions using all wall coverings: metal, wood, composite or mineral cladding… The textile facades can be screen printed to customise the structure and stage it.

 

SMC2 building systems have CSTB technical agreements.

 

 

 

[TESTIMONY] VERONIQUE SARSEILLI, MAYOR OF SAINTE-FOY-LES-LYON

At the beginning of June, the town of Sainte-Foy-Lès-Lyon (69) inaugurated a new sports facility called Karo: a sports hall with six bowls pitches and a 70 m2 clubhouse. Véronique Sarselli, the town mayor, looks back on the creation of this facility.

 

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF THIS PROJECT?

Bowling sports are very popular in Sainte-Foy-Lès-Lyon because they are synonymous with popular intergenerational sports. As the existing venue became obsolete, we needed to refurbish it to have a quality venue to play in. The project had been launched a few years ago but had not been successful the first time due to geological problems that had resulted in significant additional costs.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE A TIMBER CLUBHOUSE?

As the sports structure is located in the Marius Bourrat park, it was essential to have a material that fits harmoniously into the site. Moreover, in our town, we try to favour projects that include a sustainable development aspect. Indeed, we, the community, can no longer put up buildings that ignore this issue, we must be well aware of this. So it’s a very good solution.

WHAT WILL THE MAIN USE OF THIS SPORTS STRUCTURE BE?

This project was undertaken alongside the Sainte-Foy Pétanque association. Several competitions have and will take place there. The objective is really to be able to organise many tournaments, but also to take advantage of this structure to increase the numbers of younger players. We hope that this new sports facility will take off as hoped. The sports hall will also be freely accessible, but not the clubhouse, which is reserved for event organisers.
