Completed: July 2013
Location: Deptford, London
Type: Leisure Centre
Constraints/Challenges: Maintaining operation of the centre whilst the renovations took place.
Project Value: £1.75m
This project incorporated a top-to-bottom refurbishment in 3 three phases of a leisure centre and former public library. Our focus was to rationalize the centre layout, increasing and improving facilities. The existing health suite required updating, whilst the studio was small by modern standards and compromised by column locations. The re-worked layout provided two new studios of approximately 100m2 each.
Customers have been delighted with the new facilities including a dedicated spin studio – which required good acoustics and good ventilation. The new health suite, incorporating a new steam room, sauna, relaxation area and an ice feature, provides high quality facilities for centre users.
The soft play area of 150m2 – a very well-used facility – was created in liaison with soft play specialists to provide engaging, safe and challenging play for younger customers. The works to the leisure pool, included refurbishment of the changing area, transforming this into high-end members’ club style facilities.
