BAM selected to build £26 million leisure centre in Dover
Dover District Council has chosen BAM Construction as its preferred contractor for the pre-construction phase of a £26 million leisure centre in Kent.
To be built on a 2.1 hectare site in Whitfield, the Dover District Leisure Centre will include an eight-lane competition standard pool and spectator seating for 250, a learner pool with moveable floor, four-court sports hall, squash courts, multi-function room, gym, fitness studios, clip ‘n’ climb wall, and a café.
Centrally located to provide the only lane-swimming pool serving Dover, Deal and Sandwich, and the surrounding rural communities, the centre will also include 3G artificial pitches for five-a-side football and a minimum of 250 parking spaces
BAM Construction, who recently build a new sports centre at the Duke of York’s Royal Military School, has a strong track record of building leisure and sporting facilities.
Darren Birch, BAM’s framework manager, said: “We were really pleased to receive feedback that BAM's team stood out as enthusiastic and one Dover could work with.
"That’s something we now have to turn into detailed plans for this exciting new building.”
