Hinckley Leisure Centre

Hinckley Leisure Centre

The PPP contract for design, construction and operation of Hinckley’s new leisure centre was won by Places for People, who partnered up with Robert Limbrick Architects and Pellikaan. In one of the council’s press releases, Council Leader, Stuart Bray, said: “Residents will get outstanding facilities (…) and a significant financial return over and above the cost of delivery, which will support other services for the next 20 years. This is a clear ‘win-win’ for local people!”

The 8-lane, 25 metre main pool with viewing areas as well as the learner pool have moveable floors. Further wet facilities include a family splash area and sauna and steam rooms. The dry sports facilities include an 8-court sports hall, large gym and several dance and spinning studios. In addition there is a multipurpose / meeting room, a café and dedicated office space for the operator as well as the council. The area around the new leisure centre is landscaped and a clear, grassed play area suitable for school and community use was formed, as well as car parking facilities.

Towers Health & Racquets Club, Bedford

Towers Health & Racquets Club, Bedford

The squash club closed, gym facilities moved toward the budget end of the market, a tennis club closed and there were no permanent indoor tennis courts around. Enough reason for Matthew Towers in Bedford to make a commitment to himself, that if he was ever in a position to improve the racquets and gym facilities in his town, he would make it happen.

Now, many years later, it happened: Bedford got a high-end health & racquets club with no less than 3 indoor and 4 outdoor tennis courts, 4 squash courts, a gym, high energy studio, mind & body studio and a state-of-the-art spin studio. The wet side of the centre will have a 20 meter pool, sauna, steam room, feature shower and hydropool. Further relaxation can be found upstairs in the wellness treatment rooms, or in the bar/café area, where you can find a quiet area as well as a dedicated kids club.

Knowhow, ideas, inspiration and facts were gathered making good use of the operating experience of Pellikaan in Holland. For this design & build project, we work with Hooper Architects and during the design development, the team visited several Club Pellikaan centres, adding valuable insights about the operational consequences of the design.

Matthew Towers: “We will be trying to create a club that caters for families, whilst at the same time offering adult individuals the health club experience that they desire.  We are aiming to stimulate a renaissance in squash in the area, drive increased tennis participation, and make Bedford a healthier and happier place to live. If we could produce one or two players who go on to national recognition, that would be a bonus. Not too ambitious then!!”

Glass Mill Leisure Centre Lewisham

Glass Mill Leisure Centre Lewisham

The Glass Mill Leisure Centre is situated on the lowest three floors of a 27 storey apartment building in Lewisham. There is a competition pool with spectator seating and a judgement platform and a 20 meter learner pool, both with movable floors. On the first floor a gym and two dance studios are located as well as a wellness area with treatment rooms, sauna and steam room. Further areas include a club room, climbing wall, crèche, reception/café area and meeting rooms. The centre won the award for Best Built Project – Community Scale at the London Planning Awards.

The finishes of the elevation are particularly interesting: 1400 glass panels in ten colours are illuminated from above. The lighting responds to the sounds outside the building, such as traffic, trains and pedestrians. The pattern for the panels was made by an artist.

Christ Church Sports Centre Canterbury

Christ Church Sports Centre Canterbury

The Canterbury Christ Church University’s new sports centre, Christ Church Sports Centre, provides sports and recreation facilities for members of the University and Barton Court Grammar School.

The centre features two full-sized netball/basketball courts within which there are provisions for other sports including volleyball, badminton and cricket; a fitness suite with cardiovascular and weights equipment; changing rooms with locker rooms; shower and toilet facilities; office spaces; a first aid room; and an aerobics room offering a range of dance and exercise classes.

There is a soundproof partition in the middle of the sports hall so that it can be used simultaneously by Barton Court and University students.

A level difference of almost 5 meters on site greatly influenced the design of the centre, which is a split level building.

Canterbury Christ Church University received official status as a London 2012 Training Camp – The University’s new state-of-the-art sports centre, world class sports and exercise science laboratory and student accommodation will be available to prospective nations wishing to compete in the London 2012 Olympics.

Wyre Forest Leisure Centre, Kidderminster

Wyre Forest Leisure Centre, Kidderminster

The attractive design of the new Wyre Forest Leisure Centre inspires people to take part in a host of sports activities. Apart from a 25m competition pool with seating for spectators, visitors can use the learner pool, which has a moveable floor to accommodate different activities. The wet area also offers a sauna & steamroom.

The 6 court sports hall is suitable for many different sports and because of its dividing wall, it can be used by several groups at the same time. Furthermore a fitness suite, cycling studio and two dance studios are on offer as well as a seven meter high climbing wall and Kid’s Play area. Other areas include reception, café with seating area, offices, changing areas etc. Externally, six synthetic surface MUGA pitches – a 7-a-side pitch and five 5-a-side leisure pitches – have been provided as well as parking space. Have a look at the 3D Flythrough here.

In a team with operator Places for People Leisure, Roberts Limbrick Architects and project managers Press & Starkey, Pellikaan was responsible for the design and build construction of the new facilities. Having worked together on similar projects before, the team was able to work efficiently with the council to complete the PPP contract for the design, build, operation and maintenance of the centre in an exceptionally short period of time. Wyre Forest District Council expects to save over £ 390,000 a year with these new facilities because “the new centre is more sustainable and the contractor will be paying the council a management fee to run the facility”.

'Oktopus' Leisure Centre Siegburg

'Oktopus' Leisure Centre Siegburg

Pellikaan created an attractive sports fitness, wellness and recreation world, including renovation of an indoor and outdoor swimming pool (50m).

The biggest attraction is the diving centre with Germany’s deepest diving tower of 20.5 m. Diving enthusiasts can go on expeditions in the “Ruins of the sunken, ancient town of Atlantis” built there. The powerful surf complex is a big challenge for surfers. At 60 kilometers per hour the water shoots up to create “the perfect wave”. There is a slide with four “fast tubes”, a huge tyre flume and two turbo flumes, suitable for fast slide contests.

Alongside the fitness area, a spa and wellness area offers a sauna, steam bath, cosmetic treatments and a massage. The “Friendly Cityhotel Oktopus”, joined to the centre, has 57 modern rooms, interesting themed suites, conference rooms and a well styled restaurant with a café, bar and lounge.

The Oktopus is extremely ecologically and economically sound, due to various efficiency measures. The special attractions and the sustainable energy supply concept are guarantees for long-term project success. The Oktopus will thereby set the standard for many centres.

Family Pool and Wellness Centre Mölln

Family Pool and Wellness Centre Mölln

At the location of the previous spa baths in Mölln, Pellikaan built a new pool and sauna centre. The design concept of Geising & Böker splits the building horizontally in a heavy pedestal and a light, floating top, that appears to be flowing in the wind between the trees.

The pool targets athletes, non-swimmers and parents with children. Therefore a 25 meter pool was created as well as a play- and learner pool with hydrotherapy, and that is suitable for aquacycling as well as swimming lessons. For the little ones, a play area was created. There is ample space to relax as well.

The sauna area has two saunas and a steam room. Very spacious relax areas have been set up in this section of the centre. The open fireplace and the sauna garden complete the offer.
