Littlehampton Leisure Centre
The replacement leisure centre was built on the same site as the existing leisure centre, which meant one of the biggest challenges was ensuring that there was minimal disruption to the leisure centres operations.
To minimise disruption to leisure centre members, the construction was phased, and the new Leisure centre was constructed before the existing building was demolished.
The new leisure centre comprises wet & dry facilities including 8 lane 25m swimming pool, 4 court sports hall, 80-85 station gym, studio capacity of 50 with flexibility and a learner swimming pool.
Littlehampton was opened on time and to budget with a high standard of finish, exceeding expectations of customers and Freedom Leisure who are responsible for managing the leisure centre in partnership with Arun District Council.
The project was shortlisted for two LABC Regional Building Excellence Awards 2020
1) Best Public Service or Educational Building and
2) Best Large Commercial Project in the LABC Regional Building Excellence
