BHC Fabricate 75m Lattice Truss for Leicester City Training Ground
The indoor football pitch at Leicester City Training Ground comprises of a Square Hollow section diagrid spanning between a series of SHS Arched Lattice Trusses.
The lattice truss consists of 4 sections that span 75m (2.2 to 3.9m deep) between reinforced concrete buttress walls with concealed bolted connections between each section. 3 x 110mm diameter pins are used to connect the 4 main bottom boom sections of the truss. Each lattice truss weighs 23.5 tonnes.
The main roof steelwork of the covered pitch is exposed, and all connections were meticulously detailed with concealed bolting to meet the architectural requirements. A temporary central trestle will be required during the erection and levelling of the trusses.
