The new Hart Leisure Centre situated next to Edenbrook Country Park in Fleet; is one of the biggest investments Hart District Council has made. Known for delivering well managed centres, providing the highest standards of service and facilities for their users; UK leisure operator Everyone Active is managing the facility on behalf of Hart Council. As a team the two organisations will strive to help the community with their health and fitness.
In early 2015 planning permission for the project was granted and the construction works began later that year. The brand new £23m centre was completed in the first quarter of 2017; designed to replace the existing Hart Leisure Centre with a spacious facility, filled with modern equipment and amenities creating new sporting opportunities. The new centre now consists of:
- 25m 8 Lane Main Pool
- 25m 4 Lane Training Pool with moveable floor
- 4 Group Exercise Studios
- 130 Station Fitness Gym
- Sauna & Steam Room
- 8-Court Multi-Use Sports hall
- Climbing Facilities
- Artificial Football Pitch
- 3G Pitch & and 2 Outdoor grass pitches
The building was delivered by main contractors, Willmott Dixon Construction and designed by GT+3 Architects.
Adjacent to Edenbrook Country Park; the project was designed to reflect its surroundings, allowing it to become one with the landscape by incorporating suitable colours and materials to create a contemporary yet sophisticated design. To meet the Hart District Council vision; a detailed specification was required to ensure that the outdoor/indoor theme was carried on throughout the scheme. This included the need for a specialist ceramic and porcelain tiling package for areas such as:
- Pool Hall; Walls, Floors, Pool Tanks and Surrounds.
- Wet and Dry Change
- Reception Wall & Floors
- Hallways & Staircase Walls & Floors
We are delighted to have provided our technical expertise; writing the M40 Specification and advising the suitable tiling packages for the areas that were required to meet the design brief and comply with British safety standards.
