Work gets underway on £22m Clydebank Leisure Centre
August 25 2015£22m Clydebank Leisure Centre after BAM were appointed by hub West Scotland to deliver the waterfront facility.
Incorporating a 25m pool, sports hall, café and gym the Kennedy Fitzgerald Associates designed build will be located on Queens Quay, replacing the outdated Play Drome on Abbotsford Road.
Doug Keillor, regional director at BAM Construction, commented: “This is something of a return visit for us as we are sitting on the doorstep of Clydebank College which we completed in 2007 and which really started the regeneration of this area. We were selected for our strong track record in delivering this type of project but this is a challenging site as we are virtually in the river and it’s a complex and futuristic design, so we won’t be resting on our laurels.”
Delivered on behalf of West Dunbartonshire Council the leisure centre promises to deliver an interactive flume ride with embedded touch point lights offering bathers the chance to compete for points on their descent.
The new pool is scheduled to open in 2017.
