Resource summary

Aquatics Centre
1 Liverpool
1.1 Iconic to Liverpool
1.1.1 The Beatles
1.1.2 LFC
1.1.3 Liver bird
1.1.4 Red
1.2 Landmarks
1.2.1 Liver Building
1.2.2 Cavern Club
1.2.3 Radio tower
1.2.4 St Georges Hall
1.2.5 Liverpool Cathedral
1.2.6 Anfield
1.2.7 Albert Docks
2 Structure
2.1 Arch
2.1.1 Examples
2.1.2 Materials Timber Connections? Glulam or Solid? Sustainable Deconstruction? Steel Can be easily deconstructed Concrete Poor Deconstructability
2.1.3 Advantages Looks good Good for large spaces Removes the need for intermediate columns
2.1.4 Disadvantages Large foundations required Large horizontal forces Complex construction Hard to deconstruct
2.3 Frame
2.3.1 Portal Frame Good if a large amount of uninterupted space is required
2.3.2 Advantages Simple construction/deconstruction Simple design
2.3.3 Disadvantages Lots of columns Intersects rooms/spaceplan
2.4 Arched roof with frame
3 Sustainability
3.1 Materials
3.1.1 Steel Advantages Flexible High Strength to Weight ratio Easily Fabricated Durable Easy Construction/Deconstruction Disadvantages Not Fireproof Expensive fireproofing costs Susceptible to Corrosion High Maintenance costs High Embodied Carbon
3.1.2 Concrete Advantages Fireproof Durable Cast into any shape Resistant to wind and water Disadvantages Less ductile Low Strength to Weight ratio Low tensile strength - needs reinforcement High Embodied Carbon Low recycleability
3.1.3 Masonry Advantages Non-Combustable Good thermal mass Asthetically pleasing Strong in Compression Disadvantages High Density Long Construction Time Rely entirely on foundations for stability High Embodied carbon in cement Quality dependent on workmanship
3.2 Transportation of materials
3.2.1 Local materials
3.2.2 Fabricate off-site Reduces amount of materials to be transported
3.2.3 Use greener vehicles Electric
3.3 Construction Method
3.3.1 Onsite Allow for later design changes Weather can cause problems Rain cause ground to be saturated Lots of construction traffic Delivering materials
3.3.2 Offsite Improved quality control No effect of weather More energy efficient Less heavy machinery Less materials for transportation Reduced waste Factory based working more efficient Exact specifications Reduce time onsite Less disruptive for locals Less noise Less ground disturbance Less construction traffic
3.4 Construction waste
3.4.1 Three R's Reduce Reuse Recycle
3.4.2 Plan properly Comprehensive plans Gantt chart Correct dimensions given Keep check of all inventory Reduces additional material deliveries
4 Deconstruction/Temporary
