Riverside Ice & Leisure, Chelmsford
The £21.6m revamp for the new leisure complex included improvements to the pool, gym and facilities.
MEP services were installed to the new 10 lane and 25 metre long swimming pool, which has moveable floors to change the depth, a learner area, changing rooms and fitness suites. These improvements made to the pool have doubled the new building’s energy efficiency compared to the former swimming facilities.
Plans have also seen the ice rink skate hire, toilets and cafe facilities updated, the gym area increased in size and the carpark turned into a multi-storey parking facility.
This new building, together with the refurbishment of the existing ice rink and sports hall provide a fantastic leisure hub to the ever improving city centre, with greater connectivity to the new Riverside developments including the new luxury retail therapy at Chelmsford’s Bond Street.
