Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre to benefit from a £3.6 million redevelopment
Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre to benefit from a £3.6 million redevelopment.
Createability and Alliance Leisure Services have joined forces and won the contract to lead the £3.6 million transformation of the leisure facilities at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre in Bristol.
The mutually beneficial partnership between the two companies follows the submission of a redevelopment scheme that the Council and the Operating Trust (Circadian Leisure) felt would meet the demands of the centre and the local community.
The brief was to design a health and leisure ‘space’ that provides an innovative, social and exciting environment with the aim of inspiring local families to adopt a healthier lifestyle. They were also tasked with a design requirement to showcase the Active Lifestyle brand, while keeping external construction to a minimum. Work is due to commence in February 2016 and is expected to take around 12 months.
The new facilities at Bradley Stoke include a major expansion of the fitness suite from 85 to 106-stations, a number of new studios including a large 270 sq m room and a 150 sq multi-purpose exercise studio, a new 12-station toning suite, enhanced soft play facilities and designated party rooms, along with a 17-station adventure climbing experience. The café is to benefit from an extension, while changing areas will be refurbished and additional parking spaces created.
The centre also features a 25m swimming pool, bubble pool, small learner pool, a six-badminton court main sports hall and two squash courts, as well as physiotherapy rooms, In Trim Hairdressing Salon, Bliss Nail and Beauty Salon and a library.
Ian Cotgrave, Managing Director at Createabillity comments: “Bradley Stoke is desperately in need of new and improved facilities to meet increased demand from planned new housing and also to improve the fitness experience for existing users. Circadian Trust is a previous client and our past relationship and the results achieved, coupled with our design expertise and build capabilities, led to us winning this exciting piece of business along with our partners Alliance Leisure.”
Mark Crutchley, Chief Executive of Circadian Trust said: “Our core aim is to improve sports and leisure provision across South Gloucestershire, whilst creating a fun and inspiring, active environment for all ages. The redevelopment will bring a wealth of new activities to the area that we believe will increase the numbers of people taking part in physical activity locally.”
Alliance are acting as the development partner to the council, and Createability as the appointed leisure, design and build specialist to design and carry out the construction works. Createability has previously worked with Circadian Trust, a non-profit distributing organisation, which operates the centre on behalf of South Gloucestershire Council.
