This new 2000 sq.m. Sports Centre includes both a 25m community pool and a 20m teaching pool to complement a 300m2 fitness suite and dance studio with associated changing and ancillary spaces.

The building replaces an existing 100 year old pool, which closed in 2006, and is located in an existing riverside park in Brighouse.  The chosen site required relocation of existing tennis courts and the scheme was designed to respond to its context and the 'Pool in the park' concept.

The massing of the building is sensitively handled with several mono-pitched roofs stepping down with the naturally sloping site.  Materials were carefully chosen to blend with the surroundings and include reconstituted stone, composite cladding, cedar timber cladding and standing seam aluminium roof.  Saunders Boston Ltd were appointed to undertake a full Architectural and Interior service for Willmott Dixon on a design & build basis under a partnering contract through the SCAPE framework.
