Our leisure specialists have been appointed to deliver a brand new leisure centre in Stone, Staffordshire.

Located at Westbridge Park, just off Stafford Road and close to Stone Cricket Club, the circa 24,760 sq ft, £7.6 million building will replace an existing leisure centre and is part of the local council’s £10 million programme of investment in the town’s leisure facilities.

Willmott Dixon is delivering a range of sports and leisure facilities at the centre, including a 25 metre, six-lane swimming pool; a 3,767 sq ft gym and 80 station fitness suite; two 1,615 sq ft dance studios and associated ancillary facilities, including a new surface car park.

The appointment to this project follows the successful delivery of Blackbird Leys Swimming Pool in Oxford and Moseley Rugby Club.

Peter Owen, managing director in our Midlands office, said:

“This new leisure centre represents a significant upgrade to the existing facility, providing residents of Stone with access to a fresh, modern and greatly enhanced fitness environment.
“This is a highly specialist project and one that demonstrates Willmott Dixon’s experience in the leisure sector perfectly, bringing together a number of disciplines.”

Work on the new leisure centre is expected to be completed and the building handed over to owner Staffordshire County Councill, in February 2019.
