Westlands Leisure Centre - Sports Hall
We acted as Project Mangers, Quantity Surveyors, and CDM Coordinators in the alterations and refurbishment of the Sports Hall and Westlands Leisure Complex.
The existing Sports Hall was poorly space planned and in need of complete refurbishment.
South Somerset District Council took out a 30-year lease of the former Westland’s Sports & Leisure Complex and obtained part funding from Sport England and Badminton England to help fund the refurbishment works.
The Sports Hall was refurbished to meet the stringent standards set out by Sport England and Badminton England, including a new Junkers timber floor and markings, new LED lighting, and a radiant heating system.
The former ground floor rooms were demolished with new changing rooms provided, along with the refurbishment of two retained squash courts, and the creation of a new high quality exercise studio and gym.
New boilers, plant and mechanical and electrical systems were installed throughout as well as the latest booking system which enables ‘smart’ bookings either remotely or on-site via kiosks or app technology.
The Sports Hall opened in January 2017 and is a complete success. It is operated by LED Leisure.
Badminton England have said that ‘the hall is absolutely fantastic and it is great that there is now so much opportunity for badminton in such a well designed and built space’.
