Hornchurch leisure centre set to boost post-lockdown fitness


A “state-of-the-art” leisure centre has been completed in Hornchurch, east London for Havering Borough Council and Everyone Active, designed by sports and leisure specialist practice GT3 Architects as a multi-purpose, accessible space for the local community.


Delivered with Metnor Construction and Paragon Building Consultancy, Harrow Lodge Leisure Centre opened to the public earlier this year in line with government Covid guidance. Spanning two floors and covering more than 6,000 m2


, the facility


replaces the town’s existing sports centre. The flexible space accommodates a wide range of different leisure activities including a 25 metre eight-lane pool with 250 seat viewing gallery, wet changing village, sauna, steam-room, and an onsite cafe opening onto a public plaza.


REFURBISHMENT


Stephen George + Partners refurbishes warehouse to create modern logistics facility in Aberdeen


Stephen George + Partners (SGP) has announced the completion of the comprehensive refurbishment of a 74,600 ft2


warehouse building to


‘Grade A’ standard for logistics, storage and distribution. Completed at Aberdeen One, a new urban logistics park in the Altens Industrial Estate on the south side of Aberdeen, the architects worked closely with client Titan Investors to reconfigure the existing building. Two units of 28,000 ft2


and 40,000 ft2 were created,


(plus office provision) with the former being a shell only refurbishment and the latter pre-let to FedEx.


In addition to new subdividing internal


walls, the external envelope has been reclad with a neutral palette of grey and white cladding, creating a contemporary modern look. Additional level access

pool offers increased flexibility for the centre. A movable pool floor will also facilitate a range of activities, from baby and toddler classes through to diving lessons, aqua aerobics, and group wheelchair access. GT3 Architects also worked with international pool expert Myrtha Pools to deliver the facilities – utilising the firm’s innovative prefabricated


steel tank technology to create the custom pool.


Harrow Lodge Leisure Centre also houses a fitness suite offering 150 workout stations with floor-to-ceiling windows maximising the park views. Three multi-function fitness studios and a large four-court sports hall lend themselves to a range of activities to suit the needs of Hornchurch’s residents, from badminton to basketball.


SGP Aberdeen One, Units 1 & 2


doors have been added to both units. Unit 1 includes a new external office area, plus eight dock levellers, three of which are to accommodate the double deck trailers of European lorries.


Marcus Madden-Smith, partner at SGP explains: “Aberdeen One is a new area for logistics at the industrial estate, historically well established in the oil and gas industry but equally able to diversify


to meet the growing demand for logistics and distribution hubs in the area. We took the decision to reuse, repurpose and refurbish the existing structure as a sustainable alternative to demolishing it. We developed the size and layout of the units and surrounding service yard to meet the needs of the local market, and the client has already disclosed the likelihood of future phases on site.”
