Chelsea FC scores again with aluminium

Chelsea Football Club has chosen aluminium façade systems for each of its three training academy projects at its campus in the UK. Is that what they call a hat trick?

The systems were first used in the construction of Chelsea’s world-class training facility at Cobham, in Surrey, to give the academy an open and spacious feel and eye-catching design. The club followed by choosing the aluminium systems for its adjacent youth and community facility, which was completed in 2009.

Building an underground extension with doors from Hydro's Technal brand

Its most recent project was a below-ground extension at the site, designed by AFL Architects. The extension has given the football club additional gym, medical treatment and rehabilitation areas immediately adjacent to the existing fitness and related activities.

In addition to the façade, the extension project included the delivery of hinged double CD commercial doors from Hydro's Technal brand. These were inserted into the curtain walling for access to the gym.

“We have specified Technal’s products on multiple projects, including the original building on this training campus, which both ourselves and the client have been very pleased with,” says associate director John Hampton of AFL Architects.

“Our aim was for there to be no difference in appearance between the extension and the original building. The curtain walling allowed us to realize this aesthetically and to deliver a high level of thermal efficiency. The full-height continuous glazing also allows a sufficient amount of light into the basement. The façade systems are all performing extremely well.”
