Patrick Parsons, in partnership with Darnton B3 Architects and Hirst Landscape Architects, have been appointed by Argyll and Bute Council to design a new £18m Leisure Centre, in the beautiful waterfront town of Helensburgh, Scotland.
Argyll and Bute Council have approved the impressive project to transform the existing public swimming pool in to a new build six lane, 25m swimming pool with 150 spectator capacity. A larger pool, equipped for teaching, will be installed along with enhanced dry side facilities with new changing rooms, lockers and showers. The existing gym space will also be improved, doubling in size with space for a spin and dance class studio accompanied by a children’s play area.
Other improvements will see a new surface, better lighting and clearly marked bays in the car park, with the creation of public spaces, a walkway, lighting and artwork around the pierhead.
Patrick Parsons will be providing civil and structural engineering services as well as amenity lighting services for the development, and will be working in close collaboration with the Argyll and Bute flooding team to design and deliver the new car park and flood defences.
The new leisure development and its surroundings will provide a modern and fresh environment, creating a positive impact on the community and attracting new people to the area.
Robin McCartney, Associate Director of multi-disciplinary consulting engineering firm, Patrick Parsons, said: “We’re thrilled that Patrick Parsons has been appointed as part of the design team for this impressive project that will have a positive impact on the local community and attract people to the area.”
