Steel completes at Bradford leisure scheme

Posted on by in News

Working on behalf of main contractor ISG, Billington Structures has completed the erection of the steel frame for the new £17.5M Sedbergh Sports and Leisure Facility in Bradford.

The scheme is part of an ongoing investment programme by the council to replace outdated and inefficient leisure facilities with modern, purpose-built amenities that better serve local communities and encourage greater participation in sports.

The high-specification new build leisure centre includes a 25m swimming pool, eight-court sports hall, 80-station fitness suite, dance studios and café as well as outdoor pitches for football and rugby.

The two-storey steel-framed building also boasts a 12m learner pool with a moveable floor, to help younger or less able swimmers enter the water safely.

Designed to complement its surroundings on the Sedbergh Playing Fields site, the 5,100m² building features a large expanse of glazing to its façade, with solar shading panels and timber cladding elements, as wells as a striking aluminium roof design that wraps around the structure. The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2019.
