Fort Regent Leisure Centre

The history of the Fort Regent from its origins to the present day are first described followed by the requirements of the States of Jersey and the evolution of the design now under construction. The engineering problems encountered and the derivation of design loadings together with the solutions to these problems and the design logic employed are discussed. The various structural elements that form the complete roof structure, such as the curved roof beams, fascia girders, portal frames, and the north and south ends and the dome, are fully described together with the design procedure for the structural elements and the methods of shop and site fabrication. W.H. davies, B.A. Gray and F.E.S. West
