BAM has been contracted for the £16m project by LiveWire, a community interest company that has been managing leisure, library and lifestyle services in Warrington since May 2012
The existing Great Sankey Leisure Centre will be revamped to include a fitness suite, swimming pools, sports hall, tennis courts, 3G pitch, GP surgeries, library, cafe and health and wellbeing facilities including a spa. Construction work on the new ‘neighbourhood hub’ begins in November 2015, with completion a year later.
LiveWire managing director Jan Souness said: “We are pleased to announce the appointment of BAM as the contractor to carry out the development of the existing Great Sankey Leisure Centre to transform it into a modern integrated facility for the whole community.”
BAM construction director Ian Fleming said: “It’s very important to us to deliver this project successfully for the whole community, and not just to build a fantastic facility but to make the opportunity of the build itself into a positive experience for them. We’re really looking forward to engaging people and creating something that will truly enhance the lives of everybody who lives here.”
