The Triangle is a national competition-standard indoor and
outdoor wet and dry sports and leisure centre located near Burgess
Hill in Mid Sussex, serving the local community and a large area of
South East England. Following a public notice, WGI won the design
submission with Miller Construction on the basis of an existing
relationship, and supported by existing sports experience. WGI
provided full architectural design and was lead consultant
coordinating the design team.
WGI's competition winning design for the 10,000m2 complex
maintained a low profile on the greenfield site, referencing the
local vernacular including local stock brickwork and clay roofing.
It also included an innovative design for indoor and outdoor pool
facilities with adjustable floor, flume and changing village. One
wing incorporated the wet facilities and the other the dry sports,
with entrance, communal catering facilities, retail units and
conference centre located in the centre acting as a node and link.
The £13 million facility was officially opened by HM The Queen.
