New community leisure centre
Work has started on a new community leisure centre in St Helens, Merseyside which will feature a five-lane, 25m swimming pool with a large changing room area.
Designed by Pozzoni architects with ISG undertaking the main contractor role, the two-storey steel framed structure is being built on the site of the former Queens Park Leisure Centre which was previously demolished.
The steelwork contractor for the project is EvadX and it is due to commence its work, which also includes installing precast stairs and metal decking, during February.
Additional facilities within the new Queens Park Leisure Centre include a spacious dance studio, with sprung timber flooring and a large fitness suite, boasting the very latest cardiovascular and free weights training equipment.
A viewing and vending area will be located at ground floor level, as well as a community meeting room and a number of administrative offices.
