Warrington Borough Council is inviting bids for a £27 million contract to redevelop Orford Park.
The project comprises a new-build three-storey hub building of approximately 10,500 sq m, car parking and redevelopment of the existing park and grassed areas.
External works include forming new grassed pitches, a new artificial pitch, skateboard and bmx park, cycle and walking trails, refurbishment of bowling greens, bowls pavilion, and extensive remodelling of park landscaping.
The hub building will incorporate an eight-lane swimming pool, teaching pool, wet and dry changing facilities, fitness suite, function room, dance and multi-use studios, squash courts, a four badminton court sports hall, library, community daycare facilities, a crèche, 14-19 vocational training facilities and a cafe.
It will also house a 2,500 sq m medical centre but the fit out to this area is not included in the contract.
Work is expected to start on 1 May 2010 with completion scheduled for 30 September 2011.
The deadline for pre-qualification questionnaires is 15 September. Between five and eight firms will be invited to tender on 23 October.
