LRC Gym men's changing rooms – Shower rooms installed

The changing room windows have obscured glass for privacy and all other glass is clear. The amount of natural daylight in the gyms and the changing room is excellent. The apex of the smaller weight’s gym will be fully glazed and will introduce light and warmth as it faces south. The metal framing for the glazing is being fabricated currently together with the bridge link from the common parts to the new changing room.

The windows are double glazed for thermal and acoustic insulation and have metal frames in the same anthracite grey colour as the external cladding. They look very good.
