New life for a much-loved building.

Case Study: Thirsk and Sowerby Leisure Centre

Hambleton District Council

The transformation project at Thirsk and Sowerby Leisure Centre has successfully breathed life into a much-used and important building in its local community, resulting in a facility that befits the needs of its visitors and has achieved outstanding membership numbers as a result.

A large part of the development involved expanding the gym to three times the size of the previous facility, creating a new studio for exercise classes and meetings, as well as a dedicated cycling studio. As a result of the transformation the gym is now able to be open 24/7 for the first time, increasing its appeal even further.

Crucially, outdated plant equipment, which had forced the closure of the swimming pools several times over recent years, were replaced with greener, more environmentally sustainable equipment. A new roof for the pool area has also addressed much needed repairs and condensation issues, and LED lighting was installed throughout.

The gym’s changing rooms were also updated, and the reception seating area was refurbished with new signage and wall art introduced around the building to enhance the council’s leisure brand and improve customer experience.
