Mason Clark Associates provided structural design services, BIM, building surveys services and Party Wall advice for the redevelopment of the £22M East Riding Leisure, Bridlington. This is a multi purpose facility, replacing the previous leisure centre which had reached the end of its life.
The new centre provides a high quality, sustainable and flexible building that will be easy to maintain and manage whilst accommodating an attractive array of sports facilities. It brings together wet and dry sports and leisure activities under one roof and, situated in a prime location on the promenade, contributes to the regeneration of Bridlington town centre.
Mason Clark Associates approached this challenging project with a design management process that was planned to ensure sustainability was captured early on, with efficiencies ‘designed in’ and waste ‘designed out’.
The three-storey structure has high specification for both insulation and air permeability to ensure lower running costs. It comprises pre-cast concrete driven piles and RC ground beams, a steel frame, and precast concrete floors. The swimming pool and basement plant room use waterproof concrete and material from the demolition of the existing building has been crushed and used within the sub-structure.
