TGA Consulting Engineers are currently providing mechanical and electrical services to this new build two storey leisure centre.
The new Leisure Centre is to be constructed adjacent to the existing Leisure Centre which is to be kept live throughout the works.
This poses a challenge as a number of utility services have to be diverted around the site in order to enable construction whilst minimising downtime for the existing leisure centre. The proximity of the new Leisure Centre to the existing presents a number of construction challenges.
The proposed development includes a two storey Leisure Centre consisting of a Main Pool and Learner Pool, Fitness Suite and Studios, Wet and Dry Changing areas, a Library and Café.
A new substation is required to cater for the electrical demand along with a new water connection to service the building.
There is a central roof plant area to accommodate the ventilation and ASHP plant. The surrounding roof area is to have PV arrays installed.
The building has been carefully designed to minimise loads and utilise high efficiency equipment. The building is to achieve BREEAM Very Good
