The Selby Leisure Village project sees ISG construct a 13,000 sq ft steel frame building next to the recently opened Selby Leisure Centre. New facilities include ten pin bowling, adventure play area, indoor aerial trekking, adventure climbing and an indoor skate and BMX park. The new structure also incorporates a double-height area for an indoor ski simulator.
The Selby contract runs alongside work at Howe Bridge Leisure Centre in Atherton, Wigan, as part of an operational refurbishment scheme for Alliance Leisure, which is due for completion in late summer. ISG is transforming the existing sports hall into an ‘Extreme Zone’, including skate ramps and ‘clip and climb’ walls.
ISG is also on site at Prestatyn’s Nova Centre carrying out a refurbishment project that will deliver improvements to the building’s energy and thermal performance, reducing running costs and the facility’s carbon footprint. Due for completion towards the end of the year, ISG is building a new entrance and a fitness suite with windows overlooking the sea, as well as two studio areas with flexible partitioning to allow its use as a single function room.
Danny Murray, ISG’s Northern regional managing director, said: “These three schemes continue our long-standing relationship with Alliance Leisure as a primary delivery partner for the company’s extensive programme of improvements to municipal leisure services. Creating facilities that appeal to a broad range of users is essential in driving up participation in leisure activities, bringing major health benefits and fostering strong community bonds.”
