Leisure Centre Woodley

Leisure Centre Woodley

Pellikaan won the design & build tender to replace the tired former leisure centre in Woodley.

The new leisure centre will include a six-lane 25-metre swimming pool, a teaching pool with a movable floor, a gym plus a ‘live well’ gym, a four-court sports hall, and an additional studio and a café. It will benefit the whole community with its up-to-date, accessible and flexible facilities, as well as preventative health services.

“This new centre won’t just be a hub for sports – a place to improve or maintain your health. It will be a community focus for people in Woodley of all ages and sporting abilities to enjoy, and socialise, as well as somewhere to go for help to avoid health issues becoming a problem in the first place,” said Cllr Norman Jorgensen, executive member for environment, leisure and libraries.

The Hive Leisure Centre, Ely

The Hive Leisure Centre, Ely

The famous cathedral of Ely served as inspiration for the choice of materials for the new Leisure in East Cambridgeshire. For example on the sports hall walls.

Value engineering and design development were essential for this project, and we worked closely together with Roberts Limbrick Architects to achieve the best possible value for money whilst staying true to the design philosophy of the AFLS&P design, which was the basis for the project at tender stage. One example of this that we moved the basement and roof plant rooms to the ground floor and first floor levels without increasing the building’s footprint.

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.

Sports Centre De Roodloop Hilvarenbeek

Sports Centre De Roodloop Hilvarenbeek

We worked closely together with our M&E partner and architect for the design and build construction of this new sports hall – swimming pool combination. Long term maintenance of the installations is part of the contract.

The compact building takes into account the requirements of the visitors very well. When you enter the building, you can see where you need to go right away. From the café are, you can see the sports hall as well as the swimming pool. Visitors will feel welcomed and be enticed to do sports.

A lot of attention went to the sustainability of the building, which resulted in an all-electric centre: the first swimming pool without a gas connection. This is achieved by a combination of reducing energy requirements through high insulation values and airtightness, and with technical installations including solar panels, heat pumps, LED lighting and heat recovery systems.

Mondriaan Sports Hall Delft

Mondriaan Sports Hall Delft

The Mondriaan Sports Hall will be realised at the Sports and Movement College in Delft, The Netherlands. With their own sports hall, fitness and studio, students can now take these important classes at their own location rather than having to travel. Clubs with which the school has apprenticeship or training agreements can also use the hall.

Full-electric and energy-neutral

The Design & Build tender was judged on design, quality and sustainability. Therefore Architects Bureau Bos and Pellikaan paid extra attention to the technical design. This is one of the first full-electric sports halls in Holland: no gas required. All air and water is heated electronically.

Measures to minimise use of electricity include thermal energy storage, heat pumps, LED lighting etc. By installing a large amount of PV cells on the roof, the building produces all the electricity it needs.

School, rehabilitation and sports

Heliomare Child and Youth Centre:
In this new Child- and Youth Centre,  children and young adults with special needs will find a school for special needs education that also offers facilities for rehabilitation, sports and movement. And to add to all that, the high-tech Regional Expert Centre offers outpatient treatment. Therefore, in addition to the usual school facilities, this centre has dedicated sports and movement areas, a hydrotherapy pool and rehabilitation rooms.

Every functionality of the building has its own domain, with its own entrance, but everybody comes together at the plaza. This large, high area houses the restaurant and has views to every domain.

Heemskerk Multipurpose Sports Centre:
A separate part of the building is the Multipurpose Sports Centre. During the daytime, this is used by primary school pupils from the area as well as Heliomare’s primary and secondary school students. The Heemskerk Council’s new sports hall is built to Dutch Olympic Committee standards and therefore also excellently suited for use by local sports clubs.

Engineer, Build, Maintain: the design by Architectenbureau Marlies Rohmer was further developed by our team before construction. After hand-over, Pellikaan remains responsible for maintenance of the building for 12 years.

Footbonaut Hall TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, Zuzenhausen

Footbonaut Hall TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, Zuzenhausen

After Borussia Dortmund, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim is the second football club in Europe that has a Footbonaut Hall. Footbonaut should help players develop the speed of their ball control as players need to respond fast as well as precisely to the ball firing machines.

The 28m x42m hall is 7.60 meters high, offering sufficient space for ball practise. Two storey ancillary buildings accommodate equipment for video analysis. The hall is located at the Dietmar Hopp Sports Park, which is named after the founder of SAP, main sponsor of Hoffenheim. The Park is the training centre for league football club Hoffenheim.

At the moment, the Footbonaut Hall is the most advanced football training installation. The technically advanced equipment fits seamlessly in the Dietmar Hopp Sports Park, which excells in using the latest technologies.

Want to know how it works? See “Eight ball-firing machines, 72 squares” on the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim website, or check out the Borussia Dortmund showcase on Youtube.

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!!”
