Sheerwater Leisure Centre

Sheerwater Leisure Centre

For Woking Borough Council, ThamesWey is developing the Sheerwater Regeneration project. In addition to residential units, the scheme includes community facilities, a nursery, health centre, community centre and a leisure centre which will be used by schools, local sports clubs and the community.

Pellikaan is working on the new leisure centre, which will feature a 25 metre pool and teaching pool with moveable floor, a 5-court sports hall with dividing wall, studios, and gym. The multipurpose room with bar facilities can be used as a club room by local sports clubs, or as an additional studio. The centre is built in the grounds of the Bishop David Brown School, for which a dedicated dining hall and kitchen facilities are created as well. Externally, we are creating parking, a full-size floodlit 3G football pitch with spectator seating and new grass football and rugby pitches with outdoor changing rooms.

Air source heat pumps and solar panels will provide low carbon sustainable energy. In addition, the leisure centre will be prepared for a future connection to a district heating network. Because school children will use the centre extensively, Pozzoni Architecture and Pellikaan are selecting hard wearing finishes materials to improve cleaning and maintenance of the centre.

Discharging excessive rain water

As the works are developed over a large area with minimal infiltration possibilities, excessive rain fall could present flooding problems. High ground water tables meant that we needed to carefully engineer an innovative shallow drainage system to ensure that the sports pitches can continue to be used maximally without creating issues elsewhere on site.

We designed and installed a complex drainage system with almost 2,000m3 of shallow crates below the surface, to harvest rainwater before discharging it into the existing public sewer system. That’s almost 50 fuel tanker trailers.

David Lloyd Emersons Green, Bristol

David Lloyd Emersons Green, Bristol

The Emersons Green club is the 100th UK club for David Lloyd Leisure. When he started his first leisure club in the early 1980s, David Lloyd had been part of the Pellikaan Tennis Team, where he got to train and play at the first Dutch indoor tennis centre: the Pellikaan Tennis Centre in Goirle. Pellikaan worked on the design of that first David Lloyd Club in Heston, and stayed connected to the chain ever since.

This David Lloyd club will offer a large gym floor, a sports hall and four group exercise studios for indoor cycling, high impact, Mind & Body and a new boutique-style Blaze studio. Tennis players can use the external show court or one of three courts in the tennis bubble. In addition, there will be a 20m indoor pool as well as a 25 meter outdoor heated pool and kids pools. The spa area combines indoor and outdoor facilities including saunas and steam rooms, hydropool, relax area etc.

For playing, socialising and unwinding members can use the DL kids club and the cafebar, choose for the family zone or adults only lounge, or go to the business hub.
