ISG secures £27m brace of leisure centre jobs
In Durham, the Louisa Centre is set for an extensive overhaul and upgrade. This project will involve the transformation of the sports hall to create space for TAGactive, climbing walls, cyber towers, and spectator seating. Additionally, a new café and food & beverage outlets will be integrated into the double-height practice hall, featuring two party rooms and a new soft play structure.
On the third floor, a comprehensive remodelling exercise will deliver a number of new studio spaces, including multi-use, cycling, high-impact, and wellness studios. The area will also feature breakout spaces and a new kitchen to cater to the nearby nursery facility.
This project marks ISG's fourth refurbishment collaboration with Alliance Leisure in Durham, following successful projects at Consett Leisure Centre, Abbey Leisure Centre, and Peterlee Leisure Centre.
Craig Savage, ISG’s Alliance Leisure framework lead, commented: “Alliance Leisure has helped transform the provision of community leisure amenities for the past 25 years. Their innovative model uses extensive data-driven insights and collaborative design and delivery developments from their partners, to increase community participation in leisure activities."
"In our most recent collaborations, we've elevated the concept of a leisure centre as a community hub – creating a range of additional facilities that help with life learning and employability upskilling. Through the creation of Abbey Leisure Centre and Peterlee Leisure Centre, we also actively supported local communities and businesses, ensuring 70% of project value spend was done so with localised supply chain partners. We are committed to maintaining similar levels of local investment in the Louisa Centre project."
