Plymouth £46m sports centre designs published

Detailed designs have been unveiled for a £46.5 million sports and leisure centre scheme in Plymouth’s Central Park.

The Life Centre scheme will see the city’s biggest ever investment in leisure facilities, and produce one of the country’s leading centres of aquatic excellence.

Lead architects Archial, formerly SMC Charter Architects, has been developing the Life Centre with engineering consultants ARUP and built asset consultancy EC Harris.

They have been working with Council officers and more than 50 different stakeholder groups, including professional sports associations, Sport England and the University of Plymouth.

Archial director Paul Weston said: “This building is a major architectural statement in Central Park and will act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the area. It will lift the spirits of local residents.”
