Selby Leisure Centre
Bradshaw Gass & Hope LLP
Wates Construction Ltd
The multi-million pound Abbey Leisure Centre on Scott Road suffered severe fire damage in 2012.
The damage was so bad that it was decided that repairs were not possible and a new centre would be built.
The state-of-the-art facility, which provides quality leisure services for local people and created 23 new jobs, from duty managers and supervisors to recreation assistants.
The new facility includes a health and fitness centre with up to 100 stations of equipment and dedicated changing facilities; a class and exercise studio; a refurbished synthetic sports pitch; a multi-use space for large classes, activities and sports such as judo, dance sessions, children’s activities; meetings and private hire; plus a sauna and steam room. There will also be two swimming pools – a training pool and a six-lane 25m pool.
At the topping out ceremony, main contractor Wates Construction presented a yew tree to deputy leader of the council Gillian Ivey – a symbolic gesture dating back to pagan times, and meant to bring good luck to the building.
