Raising the roof at Tollcross International Swimming Centre
Raising the roof at Tollcross International Swimming Centre
Progress at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre, venue for the swimming competition at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, reached an engineering landmark stage when a 152 tonnes truss was installed by two 500-tonne cranes.

The truss forms part of the roof structure of the building’s extension to house a new six-lane 50 metre warm-up swimming pool in addition to the existing 10-lane 50 metre competition pool. Tollcross International Swimming Centre is the dedicated venue for swimming events at the Commonwealth Games.

Installation of the truss will allow for the column supports of the existing pool roof to be removed, providing spectators and TV cameras an uninterrupted view of the competition.

As part of the programme, 1,000 permanent seats will be added to the 1,000 already existing, with a further 3,000 temporary seats in place during the Games.

The truss lift and installation was a major feat of engineering which means the swimming centre will visibly begin to take shape over the next few months.

The venue will showcase world class facilities in Glasgow, and leave a legacy for the local community. The Scottish Government wants to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to learn to swim, and to continue swimming throughout their lives.
