All new Bath Sports and Leisure Centre following £8.5 million overhaul
Createability has completed work on a three-phase £8.5 million overhaul of Bath Sports and Leisure Centre, managed by GLL on behalf of Bath & North East Somerset Council.
The remodelling project by leisure design and build expert, Createability, started in the summer of 2016 and has seen the leisure centre transformed to include a mezzanine floor with 573 sq m fitness suite, kitted out by Technogym, two purpose-built fitness studios and a dedicated 124 sq m martial arts studio, along with dry side changing rooms to serve the new facilities.
An eight-lane bowling alley and 914 sq m trampoline park complete with battle beam, dodge ball, basket ball and wipe out attractions have been created, along with a children’s soft play centre and three party rooms. A large, light, bright reception with cafe and dining area also now grace the ground floor.
A new teaching pool has been built and the pool hall has been refurbished, along with the first floor viewing gallery that overlooks both the main and teaching pools. The wet side changing facilities, health suite and reception for this section of the leisure centre have also been completely remodelled.
“The 1970s centre was run down and poorly maintained,” said Roy Clark, Createability’s Deputy Managing Director, who managed the redevelopment project. “When GLL took over management of the site they wanted to extend the lifespan of the centre and offer better facilities, in line with their Better branding. As well as the extensive work to remodel the entire inside of the leisure centre to offer, modern, relevant leisure activities for the local community, we also carried out work to recover 80% of its roof.”
