Bingham Arena is a £15.9m project to develop a new leisure centre in Bingham, Nottingham, on behalf of Rushcliffe Borough Council.
The development will see the creation of a new two-storey leisure centre featuring two swimming pools, a fitness gym, workout studios and an adjacent community hall with staging and seating.
The 5,500 square metre development will be known as Bingham Arena, with the adjacent office block being named the Bingham Enterprise Centre.
The Bingham Enterprise Business comprises of six ground-floor offices and six also on the first floor, as well as a breakout area, meeting room and shared working space.
The Bingham Arena will feature a 25-metre six-lane swimming pool with seating for 330 spectators to accommodate swimming competitions and will provide a valuable resource for local schools and swimming groups. The facility also includes a 13 x 7-metre learning pool, a café, two exercise studios, a spin studio, a fitness gym and changing room facilities, as well as a 207-space car park with 12 additional accessible spaces. The development also includes a 260 square metre community hall, which can accommodate 300 people and features a fixed stage area with dedicated changing facilities, a control room, kitchen and storage.
A highlighting feature of this development is the innovative Myrtha Pool technology, a steel-framed pool in comparison to a traditional concrete solution. By optimising the Myrtha Pool technology, Willmott Dixon will be able to provide Rushcliffe Borough Council with a more cost-efficient solution that will support a shorter build programme for the development and will result in a safer swimming pool installation process.
The envelope and internal finishes will be underway to the arena and office building.
