Lochside Arena benefits Western Isles communities

The harsh weather and long winters of the Western Isles of Scotland have led local people to raise money for a multi-purpose indoor arena, sited near Stornoway on the island of Lewis, The community-based Lochside Arena Association chose Shufflebottom to construct their arena complex.

 

The steel-framed building includes a covered arena 200 feet long and 100 feet wide, plus stables in a side extension 200 feet by 20 feet, and a canopy 100 feet wide by four metres deep.

 

The main arena has a height of 14 feet to the eaves, and is constructed in ten 20-feet bays. The steelwork is shotblast to B.S. SA 2.5 and has a hot-dipped galvanised finish. Roof cladding is Marley Eternit P6R fibre cement with alternate vented ridges and 120 rooflights. Side cladding is vertical 0.5mm plastic-coated box profile with Ultrazed side rails.

 

The building, which incorporates the Shufflebottom galvanised eaves beam gutter system, is a major addition to the amenities on Lewis in particular and for the Western Isles in general.
