Morgan Sindall to build £37.5m education and leisure centre
Morgan Sindall has been appointed to construct a £37.5 million education and leisure centre complex in Littleport, Cambridgeshire.
The project for Cambridgeshire County Council is already underway and will include the construction of an early years school, a primary school, a three-storey secondary school, a special needs school, and a community leisure facility.
The project will be completed in three phases. Phase one is already underway and will include the demolition of the existing leisure centre on Camel Road, to make way for the new education and a replacement leisure complex.
The two-storey sports centre will comprise a sports hall, a fitness suite, a multi-use hall, changing facilities, and a social bar area, and will be available for use by the whole community.
Both schools will open in time for the start of the academic year in 2017 while helping the local economy and boosting the building construction industry.
Bob Ensch, area director at Morgan Sindall, said: “Designing and constructing quality buildings which provide a positive learning environment and enhance children and young people’s educational experience requires detailed and thoughtful planning.
“We’re looking forward to utilising our vast experience of working on world-class schools to deliver this great facility.
“Once complete, the Littleport complex will not only be a comprehensive educational centre for children of all ages and abilities, but an inclusive community hub with great leisure facilities.”
