The brief

Briggs & Forrester provided a full building services solution to the new build leisure centre under the North West Construction Hub framework. We worked closely with the project team to assist with design development and to achieve the target cost plan.

The centre incorporates a 25m 8 lane local competition standard swimming pool with disabled access and spectator seating, a 17m teaching pool with disabled access, separate changing facilities for wet and dry leisure use, café and pool viewing area, 2 floor community library, a multi-function sports hall and a fitness suite and studios.

The development included an Adult Care Centre with day care services being provided by both the Council and the voluntary community sector for adults with learning disabilities, autism, sensory impairment and complex medical needs. Enhanced sporting opportunities are available for young people with physical, sensory and learning disabilities.

There are also communal facilities for use by community groups for functions, parties and exhibitions, family rooms, meeting rooms and a play area. The building which is part of Crewe town centre regeneration is very energy efficient using a state of the art efficient pool filtration system.

What we did for this project...

We have a fully integrated design and build capability across the group, including 3D coordination and Building Information Modelling. By developing the design and being fully involved in the early stages of a project, we can provide timely design solutions and verification.

The group provides a range of specialist skills encompassing engineering, design, installation, and maintenance. The combined experience, knowledge and expertise of all five divisions enables the group to develop and implement fully-integrated solutions for some of the most complex and demanding mechanical, electrical and public health engineering installations.

We guarantee a smooth handover transition with the project team remaining the main point of contact, the development of commissioning and training plan and regular visits from our team in the months after practical completion.
