Waltham Abbey Leisure Centre

Places for People Leisure was awarded the contract for design, build operation and maintenance (DBOM) for the leisure centres of Epping Forest Council.

One of the leisure centres involved is the Waltham Abbey Leisure Centre, which Pellikaan built on the location of the former community centre. Therefore, the new centre also has a community room.

Other facilities in this design and build project include a 6 lane 25 meter pool, a learner pool with moveable floor and spectator seating, a gym and dance and spinning studios.the studio can be divided so two classes can take place at the same time, each with their own lighting, air handling, sound system etc.

A compact design was made for the limited space available and the centre has been designed with a green roof to complement the surrounding recreational ground.

Wyre Forest Leisure Centre, Kidderminster

Wyre Forest Leisure Centre, Kidderminster

The attractive design of the new Wyre Forest Leisure Centre inspires people to take part in a host of sports activities. Apart from a 25m competition pool with seating for spectators, visitors can use the learner pool, which has a moveable floor to accommodate different activities. The wet area also offers a sauna & steamroom.

The 6 court sports hall is suitable for many different sports and because of its dividing wall, it can be used by several groups at the same time. Furthermore a fitness suite, cycling studio and two dance studios are on offer as well as a seven meter high climbing wall and Kid’s Play area. Other areas include reception, café with seating area, offices, changing areas etc. Externally, six synthetic surface MUGA pitches – a 7-a-side pitch and five 5-a-side leisure pitches – have been provided as well as parking space. Have a look at the 3D Flythrough here.

In a team with operator Places for People Leisure, Roberts Limbrick Architects and project managers Press & Starkey, Pellikaan was responsible for the design and build construction of the new facilities. Having worked together on similar projects before, the team was able to work efficiently with the council to complete the PPP contract for the design, build, operation and maintenance of the centre in an exceptionally short period of time. Wyre Forest District Council expects to save over £ 390,000 a year with these new facilities because “the new centre is more sustainable and the contractor will be paying the council a management fee to run the facility”.

'Oktopus' Leisure Centre Siegburg

'Oktopus' Leisure Centre Siegburg

Pellikaan created an attractive sports fitness, wellness and recreation world, including renovation of an indoor and outdoor swimming pool (50m).

The biggest attraction is the diving centre with Germany’s deepest diving tower of 20.5 m. Diving enthusiasts can go on expeditions in the “Ruins of the sunken, ancient town of Atlantis” built there. The powerful surf complex is a big challenge for surfers. At 60 kilometers per hour the water shoots up to create “the perfect wave”. There is a slide with four “fast tubes”, a huge tyre flume and two turbo flumes, suitable for fast slide contests.

Alongside the fitness area, a spa and wellness area offers a sauna, steam bath, cosmetic treatments and a massage. The “Friendly Cityhotel Oktopus”, joined to the centre, has 57 modern rooms, interesting themed suites, conference rooms and a well styled restaurant with a café, bar and lounge.

The Oktopus is extremely ecologically and economically sound, due to various efficiency measures. The special attractions and the sustainable energy supply concept are guarantees for long-term project success. The Oktopus will thereby set the standard for many centres.

Sparkhill Pool and Fitness Centre

Sparkhill Pool and Fitness Centre

Design & Build construction of the new Sparkhill Pool and Fitness Centre, which includes a training pool, learner pool, gym, dance and cycle studios. The centre is unique in its design and is sympathetic to the history of the old baths which used to sit on the same site. The site is tightly located in a very vibrant area between a library and a school building.

That meant that it was extra important to get the build programme just right. Each delivery had to be right on time, so the materials could be used in the building right away; and at the same time, all works needed to be on schedule, so the goods that were being delivered did not need to be stored on site waiting to be used. We uses lean planning techniques and extremely short communication lines to ensure the successful delivery of the project.

The project is part of a Design, Build, Operate and Maintain (DBOM) contract awarded to Places for People Leisure by Birmingham City Council.

Gosling Sports Park Welwyn Garden City

Gosling Sports Park Welwyn Garden City

Pellikaan first handed over the original tennis and bowls halls at the Gosling Sports Park in 1990 and extended the club in 1994. A luxurious new spa and wellness club is the result of the latest redevelopment by Pellikaan Construction in 2008. Times have changed since the early nineties and the former bowls hall is expected to generate more income after this refurbishment.

The former bowls hall was transformed and now offers a 17 metre spa pool with a swimming lane, four water jet stations and fountains for neck massage as well as six treatment rooms and four heat therapy experiences: a Laconium, an Indian blossom steam room, Japanese salt room and Finnish sauna. The Gosling Fitness facility remained open up throughout construction.

Along with the 100 station gym, 3 exercise studios, spa and sports retails units and refurbished entrance and café areas the new facilities are a fantastic upgrade for the Gosling Sports Park which is hoped to increase membership levels over the next year. Other facilities at Gosling Sports Park include indoor and outdoor tennis, a 170m dry ski slope and athletics and cycling tracks.

Penny Arnold, CEO of Gosling Sports Park said:
We have enjoyed working with Pellikaan Construction on this scheme. Their cooperative attitude throughout the project has resulted in great new facilities which were completed on time and in budget. Like our members, we are delighted with the new high quality spa and fitness facilities.
