Delivery of the National Centre for Cycling, Athletics and Volleyball in The Netherlands was achieved through a close collaboration of the design team with the operator and contractor to provide a unique blend of leisure and retail uses with the centre of sporting excellence at its heart. Design innovation was brought to this publicly/privately-funded project through the integration of facilities to create a sports and leisure-led mixed used destination. This is provided through an inherent flexibility of facilities: a combination of tracks for cycling and athletics but more importantly, the ability to mechanically lower two sections of the cycling piste to allow access to and link the inner field to the adjacent multi-purpose event halls. This allows use of the centre of the cycling track can be used for events, exhibitions and concerts, with 5,000 permanent spectator seats.
