Harvey Hadden Leisure Centre is the final phase of Nottingham City Council's ambitious project to transform its leisure facilities in the city, with the aim of allowing more people across Nottingham to benefit from a range of state of the art fitness amenities.
The £13.5m Harvey Hadden development is funded by Nottingham City Council and is being built by inspiredspaces Nottingham, with Carillion being the design and construction contractor for the project.
The development will include a new 50m swimming pool and aims to
replace the outdated Beechdale Swimming Centre, which will remain
open until Harvey Hadden opens its doors to the public in
Harvey Hadden Leisure Centre is part of the Harvey Hadden site that contains facilities for a number of sports including athletics and football. The projects aim is to improve and add to the facilities of the overall site, which may or may not occur at the same time as the extension and refurbishment of the leisure centre.
The new pool will be located to the south west of the existing building where it can be highly visible on entry to the larger Harvey Hadden site and also visible fromWigman Road. The detailed location of the pool has been carefully set out to enable existing all-weather pitches to be retained and the spatial arrangement of the brief to be accommodated without compromising the existing access road and parking. The ground levels slope away from the existing building entrance so that at the front of the new pool the floor level will be approximately two metres above external ground level.
The pools will be ideally orientated to limit the amount of sunlight entering the pool hall. The design of the fenestration of the pool hall on this side of the building to control glare has been carefully balanced with a need for emphasizing the openness of the pool to the public.
Emergency access to the perimeter of the building in the event
of fire will be maintained as will service access to the east side
of the existing building.
Some key design features of the new leisure centre include:
