Steel rises for Dunbartonshire leisure and care hub
East Dunbartonshire Council is investing £42.5M for the construction of the Allander Leisure and Day Care Centre in Bearsden.
The large steel-framed complex will include an eight-lane swimming pool, a 20m training pool with moveable floor, an eight-court sports hall, two squash courts, and a separate area accommodating day care facilities for adults with learning disabilities.
The entire project, which also includes a light steel-framed ‘Sportsdrome’ that will house indoor football pitches and tennis courts, is due to complete in mid-2023.
Working on behalf of main contractor McLaughlin & Harvey, Walter Watson is fabricating, supplying and erecting 1,075t of steelwork for the project.
