Willmott Dixon is strengthening its track-record as a leading provider of leisure, fitness and wellbeing accommodation, with a GBP 10 million contact from Harrogate Borough Council to extend an existing leisure centre. The project will see the company expand Ripon’s leisure centre by building a new 25m pool and associated changing and community areas. Willmott Dixon will also add a new main entrance and lobby to the current centre as well as upgrade the dry leisure facilities with new changing rooms and health suite, two dance studios, a ‘spin’ studio and a meeting room.

Outside, new play areas will be created, while the car park will be reconfigured and a new sheltered cycle rack installed, with a new bridge linking the existing facility and the new-build pool element.

Procured via Major Works England and Northern Ireland, a part of the Scape National Construction framework, Willmott Dixon is working with Pick Everard as architect and Gleeds as QS and project manager. When completed in 2021, the new six-lane pool will provide a 60 per cent increase in water recreation space in Ripon compared to the existing pool facility at nearby Ripon Spa Baths, which is nearing the end of its lifespan and will close when the new pool is open.
