Following being shortlisted for Sports & Leisure Architect of the year in the 2017 Building Design magazine awards we are excited to see the DarntonB3 designed St Nicholas Park Leisure Centre has now started on site.
Following initial appointment by the Council as Architect and Building Services Engineer, DarntonB3 has been novated to work with design and build contractor Speller Metcalfe to deliver this improved facility for Warwick District Council. The building services design team at DarntonB3 have been retained by Warwick District Council to represent the client throughout the build.
Warwick District Council is investing £14.5 million in improvements to the leisure centres at St Nicholas Park and Newbold Comyn with the assistance of Sport England funding.
The design approach is to provide a simple and intuitive layout with good interrelationships of activity spaces and functions with an efficient design and good natural supervision.
The major new extension and refurbishment of St Nicholas Park Leisure Centre will offer the following improved facilities:
• Dynamic new 80 station gym
• Two vibrant new group fitness studios
• Spin studio
• New changing rooms for the pool, gym and studios
• Redesigned entrance and reception area
