Speller Metcalfe to build new £3.6M leisure centre in Leicestershire
Leading leisure centre provider Parkwood Leisure has appointed building contractor Speller Metcalfe to build a new £3.6million leisure centre in the village of Broughton Astley, Leicestershire.
Designed by Watson Batty Architects, facilities at the new Broughton Astley Leisure Centre will include a four-court sports hall, floodlit outdoor 3G pitch, 70-station gym and a 75-space car park. Users are also set to benefit from two dance and exercise studios, a café and an outdoor play area.
Parkwood Leisure Regional Director, Alex Godfrey said: “We are delighted to be working with the award-winning Speller Metcalfe on this fantastic project, providing the community of Broughton Astley with this much-needed and anticipated leisure centre.
“Parkwood are excited for the construction works to commence on this state-of-the-art project in early 2019.”
Speller Metcalfe Regional Director, Rob Lashford, said: “This is a long sought after development for the residents of Broughton Astley, and as well as the obvious benefits to the local community, the project will also provide work for local employers throughout the build, as well as longer-term job opportunities once the centre opens.
“We bring to the project a wealth of experience and strong track record in building the highest quality sports and leisure facilities and are looking forward to working with Parkwood Leisure to deliver this impressive new complex.”
Speller Metcalfe has recently worked on a number of leisure centres across the Midlands including the refurbishments of St Nicholas Park and Newbold Comyn in Leamington Spa and extensions to Evesham and Perdiswell Leisure Centres in Worcestershire.
Construction is expected to start on the new Broughton Astley Leisure Centre in February 2019 and will complete in November 2019.
