Manchester BMX Stadium

Patrick Parsons' Huddersfield office (formerly Doyle Consulting Engineers) were involved in creating the striking Manchester BMX Stadium design incorporating an asymmetrically curved roof with an 80 metre clear span. The roof primary structure comprises an intricate series of 3.75 metre deep steel lattices.

The design of the stadium, with its landmark roof, meets all the criteria for a world-class indoor BMX track. The suspended roof provides safe headroom for BMX riders and ensures that the layout of the track can be reconfigured if required. The immensely strong and stable steel roof trusses accommodate service walkways to a vast lighting system for television broadcasting.

The Manchester BMX Stadium provides a major contribution to the city’s successful National Cycling Centre.
