My Overview: "Big Society"

The final design for the Arcadia is based on the use of shipping containers to facilitate the extension. The phased construction of the extension is key, this will allow for the center to remain open so it can generate income. The new facilities based in the shipping containers consist of improved changing and skate hire as well as a new café area and associated facilities. The main building will have roof alternations and all internal partitions will be removed to allow for an internationally sized skating rink with seating around. A ramp will connect Levenshume with the train station (controlled through the building), giving step free access to the station platforms. The future of the building lies in the development of the roof-scape into a skate park and the gradually changes that can occur as funding is secured. The Arcadia seeks to be destination for Roller Derby putting Levenshulme on the map!
