Project: Halewood Swimming, Sports and Leisure Centre
Employer: Knowsley Council
Procurement Framework: Not applicable
Programme: 66 weeks
Works Description: The project involved the construction of a new community leisure centre including swimming pool, sports hall, fitness suite and external sports pitches.
Central to the facilities is a 25-metre swimming pool, which has a moveable floor to present variable depths offering more opportunity for people to learn to swim whilst taking into account the needs of experienced swimmers.
A four-court sports hall and multi-purpose room, sprung for gymnastics, are included within the complex supported by an island reception desk, crèche & coffee bar, changing rooms, shower areas, viewing areas, sauna & steam room and administration offices. Externally facilities include two floodlit synthetic mini football pitches alongside a grass pitch for rugby and football.
The design of the pool plant room and undercroft, which circulates the entire pool, allows easy inspection of the structural concrete pool tank and provides space for safe distribution of water, heat and recycled water from filters back to the pool and makes for safer maintenance.
