BAM to build new leisure centre

BAM to build new leisure centreBAM have been selected to deliver a new £22 million leisure centre on the banks of the Clyde for West Dunbartonshire Council as a key part of the regeneration strategy for the area.

Work has already started on the state of the art four-storey building and once completed in early 2017, the new facility will replace the ageing Play Drome on Abbotsford Road.

Designed by architects Kennedy FitzGerald Associates, the new leisure centre will feature a 25-metre swimming pool, teaching pool, leisure pool with waves and flume; changing facilities, a café, multi-purpose sports hall with retractable seating, fitness suite and a dance studio.

Doug Keillor, Regional Director, BAM Construction said: “This is something of a return visit for us as we are sitting on the doorstep of Clydebank College which we completed in 2007 and which really started the regeneration of this area.

We were selected for our strong track record in delivering this type of project but this is a challenging site as we are virtually in the river and it’s a complex and futuristic design, so we won’t be resting on our laurels”.

Martin Rooney Council Leader said: “Clydebank has a proud sporting history and this centre is going to hone the next generation of sporting talent.

It marks the start of a new chapter for Queen’s Quay and I think we are all excited to welcome the first of our residents to the new centre in 2017.”
