Leisure club breaks ground at burgeoning Shawfair development
November 24 2022
Work has begun on the delivery of a new leisure club at Shawfair, Midlothian, designed by Sheffield-based Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson.
Scheduled to open next summer the David Lloyd leisure centre combines health and fitness facilities centred on a giant 100-piece plus gym. An outdoor pool, PVC tennis dome and spa garden are also provided.
The club also includes an indoor cycling studio and a cafe/bar, a business hub and an indoor soft play area.
In a design statement, the architects observed: "Because of the size of the proposed development it was important to visually break up the building's volume to bring it down to a more human scale.
"A feature finish rain screen cladding element will highlight the building's entrance. This element of the building is in slight relief from the facade and faces out to those entering through the car park, wrapping around the building onto the outdoor pool/terrace elevation."
Approved in April 2021 the club is located at Shawfair Park adjacent to Sheriffhall park & ride, with 245 parking spots.
