Streatham Ice and Leisure Centre
This new leisure facility comprises a recreational (gala event capacity) pool, learner pool, sports hall, studios, gymnasium and first-floor ice arena, and is part of a mixed-use development for this client which consists of a retail store, 250 residential flats, associated highways and external works.
The development is a vertically-stacked leisure centre with an ice rink over the top of the pools. This design was one of only two in the world.
As part of the development agreement between our client and the council, it was necessary to maintain the provision of ice facilities for the community. A temporary ice facility in Brixton was, therefore, delivered while the new leisure centre was being built. A strict programme was co-ordinated for the opening of the new centre and the closing of the temporary facility.
Currie & Brown provided project management and employer’s agent roles and worked with the various stakeholders to ensure that the opening of the new facility involved them all.
