Key Features

  • The works consisted of an RC frame building with an aluminium cladding system with UPVC windows to the façade of the building. The surrounding works comprised of a car park with electric charging facilities and external lighting with some soft landscaping
  • Redbridge Council funded this project with additional investment provided from the National Lottery’s Sport England Strategic Facilities Fund
  • We constructed a 25m six lane pool for public use comprising of a wet changing area, pool viewing area, and reception area
  • The leisure centre also has a general functional studio and a dry gym on the first floor
  • A reception area was created including separate facilities for the staff
  • External works were undertaken to create adequate parking provision for the new leisure centre along with full reinstatement and landscaping to blend the new building into the existing premises


Challenges and Solutions

  • This leisure centre is situated within the grounds of Mayfield School which required constant liaison with local residents, school stakeholders, and the council
  • Careful planning of pedestrian and vehicle routes as well as segregation from the works was paramount in order to ensure the safety of all those on site
  • Regular site meetings were held with the client’s representatives to discuss health and safety and environmental issues arising from the work and to anticipate any new health and safety and environmental issues
  • The works were carried out to an exacting specification and achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating.
