Balfour Beatty wins £18.5m leisure centre project

Balfour Beatty has won an £18.5m leisure centre contract in south London, while Mansell has secured its 65th contract at Great Ormond Street hospital.

The project at Elephant and Castle includes a swimming pool, a four-court sports hall and a gym in a three-storey building on the site of an older centre.

Designed in collaboration with Southwark Council, the leisure centre will be clad in wood and lightweight metal brass.

Balfour Beatty will seek to gain a high BREEAM rating for the project by including photovoltaic solar panels, water recycling and combined heat and boiler plant.

Southwark councillor Fiona Colley said that the scheme was part of the wider development of Elephant and Castle.

“The new leisure centre is one of the highlights of the regeneration in the area,” she said.

Works started on site late April with completion expected in December 2014.

Meanwhile Mansell has won a £10m contract at Great Ormond Street Hospital through its five-year ProCure21+ framework arrangement.

The Balfour Beatty-owned company has already completed 64 projects at the London children’s hospital under the framework, including improvements to wards and clinical facilities as well as offices.

This job will see Mansell deliver angiography, post-anesthesia care and hybrid suites.

The scheme will involve infilling an existing ‘landlocked’ atrium at the second and third floor levels and building a cantilevered steel frame structure to provide additional space.

New facilities are due to be completed in early 2014.
