A £9.5m leisure centre is being constructed in Waltham Abbey.
Places for People Leisure were awarded the 20 year design, build, operate and maintain contract for the new Waltham Abbey Leisure Centre by Epping Forest District Council, along with their construction partners Pellikaan Construction and architects Pozzoni.
The centre has been designed with a green roof to complement the surrounding recreational ground and will feature an 80-station fitness suite, 25m six lane pool with 15m learner pool, exercise and group cycling studio, a community room, and café.
The centre will also feature a dedicated virtual cycling studio with classes led by Les Mills virtual master trainers, enabling customers to take part in classes whenever they want to.
The new centre is due to open in winter 2018. The current Waltham Abbey Swimming Pool recently received investment to improve the customer experience and will remain open and fully operational until the new centre opens.
