Gosling Sports Park Welwyn Garden City

Gosling Sports Park Welwyn Garden City

Pellikaan first handed over the original tennis and bowls halls at the Gosling Sports Park in 1990 and extended the club in 1994. A luxurious new spa and wellness club is the result of the latest redevelopment by Pellikaan Construction in 2008. Times have changed since the early nineties and the former bowls hall is expected to generate more income after this refurbishment.

The former bowls hall was transformed and now offers a 17 metre spa pool with a swimming lane, four water jet stations and fountains for neck massage as well as six treatment rooms and four heat therapy experiences: a Laconium, an Indian blossom steam room, Japanese salt room and Finnish sauna. The Gosling Fitness facility remained open up throughout construction.

Along with the 100 station gym, 3 exercise studios, spa and sports retails units and refurbished entrance and café areas the new facilities are a fantastic upgrade for the Gosling Sports Park which is hoped to increase membership levels over the next year. Other facilities at Gosling Sports Park include indoor and outdoor tennis, a 170m dry ski slope and athletics and cycling tracks.

Penny Arnold, CEO of Gosling Sports Park said:
We have enjoyed working with Pellikaan Construction on this scheme. Their cooperative attitude throughout the project has resulted in great new facilities which were completed on time and in budget. Like our members, we are delighted with the new high quality spa and fitness facilities.

Sennocke Centre Sevenoaks

Sennocke Centre Sevenoaks

At Sevenoaks, a new sports centre was built as an extension of the existing tennis hall. The hall remained in use during part of the construction of the new centre. The refurbishment of the hall was scheduled late in the planning, so it could remain open as long as possible.

The existing tennis hall at Sevenoaks School was refurbished with new carpets, lighting etc.

The new centre offers the students a wide range of facilities such as a multi-purpose sports hall, six-lane swimming pool, fitness, dance, squash and tennis.

With the sports hall viewing gallery, poolside seating and social areas the audience can be made very welcome.

Pieter Nieuwland College, Amsterdam

Pieter Nieuwland College Amsterdam

During construction the school was still in normal use, so the work on the renovation and expansion of the Pieter Nieuwland College was carried out in phases. Optimum safety was ensured by the site being clearly separated from the other rooms. Also, any major work was performed during holidays.

Two existing wings were completely renovated with new facades, roofs, floors, walls, etc. Some of the existing building was demolished to make way for a larger building. The new part is detached and this is achieved between the existing buildings. Due to the space created between the old and new facades and installing a skylight above, and interesting light effect was created.

The renewed school has a new main entrance with concierge, theatre space, lockers, recreation rooms and library. There are practice rooms for painting, crafts, music and science labs. Furthermore, there is room for 30 regular classrooms, offices etc.

Business Centre Arnsberg

Business Centre Arnsberg

On the terrain of the Kaiser lighting factory in Arnsberg-Neheim, the historic factory building was cleaned up, redeveloped and completed with new build structures.

A multipurpose centre arose here with offices, workshops, conference rooms and event areas. A high level of transparency was created by using much glass in the two entrance areas and the lobby. The event hall with large stage is the centre of the ground floor. Because of the detailed architecture and the state-of-the-art technical provisions, the centre is a great platform for modern communication, education, technology, service and business. Exemplary conditions have been created here for regional innovative businesses from many sectors.

Sunderland Swimming Pools

Sunderland Swimming Pools

Sunderland City Council chose Pellikaan to build two 25m swimming pools based on design and cost: it was the most economically advantageous proposal.

The old Hetton Leisure Complex was demolished to make way for the Coalfields Swimming Pool. The new centre has a 25-meter pool with viewing area, a learner pool, fitness, sauna area, reception and changing facilities. The décor is light, fresh and airy and the exterior is aesthetically pleasing, with strong angles and curves: a contradicting combination that really works.

Sunderland South Swimming Pool was joined to the existing Sunderland Tennis Centre. The centre remained open during construction. To ensure that the users were not disturbed, a lot of planning, communication and co-ordination took place. A new 25 meter pool with various changing areas and ancillaries enhances the sports offer. Part of the existing centre were also refurbished, a new shared entrance, seating and reception area were realised. Externally a fantastic adventure play area was established.

Watford Woodside & Central

Watford Woodside & Central

In Watford, Pellikaan completed a £ 22m contract for two leisure centres at Central and Woodside. At Central, the existing swimming pool centre in the town centre has been replaced by a new sports centre. This encompasses a sports hall, 25 meter pool, children’s pool, climbing wall, crèche, café, fitness and dance.

At Woodside, Pellikaan have redeveloped the 30-year-old leisure centre and added an extension for ‘wet’ facilities including a swimming pool with moveable floor, learner pool and sauna. The existing sports hall was refurbished, creating a warm atmosphere, high durability and excellent acoustic performance. Other facilities include health and fitness, café, treatment rooms, artificial pitch, dance studio, crèche, squash courts etc.

Sustainability was a key consideration in the design. This resulted in the international Green Apple Award. The measures implemented ensure lower carbon emission rates as well as more economical running costs. Some examples are insulation levels, a solar thermal array, rainwater recycling and heat recovery systems. The extended ground source heat pump system, using boreholes of approx. 100 metres deep, enables use of the natural heat of the earth. Furthermore, heat loss and emission of carbon dioxide by air leakage were reduced significantly.

Cate Hall, Corporate Director at Watford Borough Council: “Great partnership working enabled us to deliver very high quality buildings that everyone is proud of, which are on time and on budget.”
