ISG has been awarded a £2.5 million contract by Alliance Leisure to deliver the refurbishment and extension of Hambleton Leisure Centre in Northallerton.
The project will result in a new 5,100 sq ft extension to the complex that will house a gym and toning area to allow the current gym space to be converted into studios, including an immersive spinning studio. New energy-efficient lighting will also be installed in the sports hall and the timber sprung floor will be upgraded.
The refurbishment of the existing centre will include repair and upgrade works to the existing water slides, flumes and wave machine in the pool area. The changing facilities will also be upgraded with the addition of a new members’ change area.
Andy McLinden, managing director of ISG’s UK Construction North and Scotland business, said: “Our team will be working in a live environment to deliver this important improvement project for the local community.
“We have had a framework agreement with Alliance Leisure since 2010, which is built around Sport England’s need to engage people in fitness initiatives. This is putting government-funded provision in direct competition with the commercial sector as they now boast top of the range facilities.”
James Foley, commercial director at Alliance Leisure, said: “The planned works will breathe new life into the leisure provision in Hambleton and expand the choice of activities open to the community, offering something for everyone for many years to come.”
The centre, which is run by Hambleton District Council, is due for completion at the end of the year.
