We are delighted to announce that Gyoury Self has been appointed to provide structural and civil engineering for the Coalville Leisure Centre in North West Leicestershire.

Leisure complex aerial viewAs planning permission is required, we are currently preparing preliminary designs for the state-of-the-art leisure centre which will be built on council-owned land off the A511 (Stephenson Way) in Coalville.

The £22 million project is being developed by North West Leicestershire District Council in partnership with Everyone Active, a leisure contractor that manages over 170 leisure and cultural centres across the UK.

The plans for the Coalville centre will see the land turned into a parkland leisure destination, including a trim trail with activity stations, pedestrian and cycle access from Hermitage Recreation Ground and Stephenson College, and a high ropes course within the woodland.

The centre itself will include:

Eight lane, 25-metre main pool and learner pool with moveable floor

  • 120 station gym, 25 spin cycles and three dance studios.
  • Café with healthy eating options.
  • Eight court sports hall and three squash courts.
  • Changing Places facility accessible from the lobby.
  • 250 car spaces
  • Clip ‘n’ Climb and soft play programmed
  • Sauna, steam and spa pool.

Paragon Building Consultancy has been appointed as project managers and the main contractor is Metnor Construction. We will also be working alongside GT3 Architects and OOBE landscape architects as part of the main design team.

Gyoury Self is providing full Structural and Civil Engineering services, including Section 278 and highway bridge over the Grace Dieu brook.

We have been involved with the project from its inception, preparing preliminary designs to help the contractor develop cost plans for pre-planning and planning applications.

Once construction gets underway, the new centre will take around 18 months to build and it is expected to open in 2021.
