Yorkshire Leisure Centre to offer 24 hour gym access following £2.5 million refurbishment – Alliance Leisure
As part of a 26-week refurbishment project, with an investment total of £2.5 million, Northallerton Leisure Centre has opened the doors to its gym facility 24 hours a day to enable the centre to provide a more flexible service to the local community. Principle contractor on the project, Alliance Leisure employed ISG to carry out the works as part of a 10-year partnership agreement.
James Foley, Commercial Director at Alliance, says: “This project is an excellent example of how the public and private sector are working together to deliver against Sport England’s objective to encourage more participation in physical activity. Northallerton Leisure Centre is now an accessible, modern and inviting hub where all ages and abilities can meet and enjoy a full range of physical activities. The whole project has been delivered on time, on budget and in a live environment with minimal disruption to service throughout. The investment means that the local community now has a modern-day activity hub which will provide a sustainable leisure provision for many years to come.”
The investment project, commissioned and funded mainly by Hambleton District Council with a £213,000 contribution from Sport England towards swim changing improvements, has seen the construction of a new 5,100sq ft extension to house a fully equipped fitness suite, supplied by Technogym and complete with new functional training area and rig. A toning suite has also been added to attract a new segment of the market and the original fitness space has been renovated to include a general purpose studio and a group cycling studio.
