The Acton Town Hall regeneration, designed by S&P Architects, will implement the council’s ‘A new heart for Acton’ plan by improving and expanding the Acton Town Hall complex that was originally built more than 100 years ago.
While retaining the Town Hall’s heritage, the project includes demolition of Acton’s former swimming baths, which will be replaced by a new three-storey building housing a 25m pool and a trainer pool, along with modern fitness and leisure facilities including a larger gym.
Part of the Town Hall will also be kept and refurbished to create a new library and council offices and the Town Hall’s frontage and the baths chimney, listed Grade II, will also be restored.
Willmott Dixon recently completed the regeneration of South Acton estate with Catalyst Housing and also worked with S&P Architects on the nearby Northolt Leisure Centre, which opened in January 2010.
Chris Tredget, managing director for Willmott Dixon in North London, said: “We have a long track record in Ealing and are looking forward to adding to that with the improved Acton Town Hall that will be a new focal point on main high street.”
