Watson Batty Architects recently responded to an opportunity to develop a sketch design concept for a new £17m public leisure centre in the East Midlands. The proposal includes a 25 metre six lane swimming pool, learner pool, fitness suite, two studios, three squash courts and a six badminton court sized multi purpose sports hall.
The development represents a wider strategic initiative by the local authority to replace a nearby ageing facility. It will help provide a much needed catalyst for town centre economic regeneration formerly dependant on coal mining.
Our contemporary response reflects current national sports governing body design guidance, the latest market sector intelligence and Watson Batty’s UK wide sport and leisure experience and expertise.
