The Challenge

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.

The Solution

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.

2) Best Large Commercial Project in the LABC Regional Building Excellence

Once opened to the public, membership applications increased c200% outperforming forecasted targets.
