Romford Leisure Centre
This project consists of the design and construction of a new-build four-storey leisure facility. It will include a 25m-long pool with a learner pool and associated changing rooms, spectator seating, fitness/dance studios, an ice rink with changing rooms and a café.
The council’s investment in this facility is aimed at regenerating the area to provide competition-level sporting facilities for the whole borough. The works included a land swap not only to provide the council with the appropriate land but to help fund the project.
Currie & Brown is providing employer’s agent, cost management and principal designer services on the project. This is one of the first leisure developments in the country where the ice rink will be positioned above the swimming pool. Currie & Brown provided project management and employer’s agent services on the second facility of this design in the world, in Streatham.
