The investment by North East Lincolnshire Council is a continuation of the works undertaken earlier in the year to improve energy efficiency and together represents a significant overall investment in this facility.
Work commenced at the beginning of June, following construction industry safe working practice, and includes the refurbishment of:
- all dry side changing facilities;
- both fitness studios; and
- the health suite including improvements to the steam room.
The project is expected to be completed in August, with the majority of the works completed before the leisure centre reopens once government guidelines allow and hopefully during July.
Councillor Callum Procter, portfolio holder for leisure, said: “I’m delighted we’ve been able to secure investment into these facilities to benefit users of the centre.
“Close working with our partner, ENGIE, and their contractors has allowed us to start this work at a time when we can guarantee no disruption to centre users for the majority of the works.
“The investment of over £100,000 shows our commitment to ensuring that the leisure facilities in North East Lincolnshire are at a good standard for users.”
The improvements are being managed by the council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, with local contractor, Topcon Construction Ltd, carrying out the works and working together with Lincs Inspire Limited who manage the facility.
