Members of our Main Contracts team are involved in the extensive alterations and refurbishment of the Westcroft Leisure Centre for the London Borough of Sutton. The scheme includes a new teaching pool and a competition size swimming pool with electronic timing facilities, a spectator seating area and the gym will be repositioned and enlarged to incorporate 170 stations. Changing rooms are being re-modelled, beauty treatment rooms installed and a library introduced into the building. An extension to the front of the building will form a reception area.
To mark the foundations being finished in the extension a time capsule burial ceremony was held with pupils of All Saints Church of England Primary School attending along with members of the London Borough of Sutton and Everyone Active who will manage the leisure centre after hand-over. Each child placed a couple of items into the time capsule, including, a school prospectus, lunch menu, a photo of the current pupils, a school tie and cap. The time capsule was then buried and will stay there for as long as the building stands.
