Bam leisure centre Scotland

Bam Construction will develop a £22m leisure centre on the banks of the Clyde River for West Dunbartonshire Council in Scotland.

The firm was selected by the council’s development partner West Scotland on its behalf.

Construction of the new four-storey building will be a part of the council’s regeneration plan for what was once the heart of Clydebank’s shipbuilding industry.

Designs for the construction have been prepared by architect Kennedy Fitzgerald Associates with construction already been initiated.

Expected to be completed in early 2017, the building will replace the old Play Drome on Abbotsford Road.

"Clydebank has a proud sporting history and this centre is going to hone the next-generation of sporting talent."

The planned leisure centre will feature a 25m swimming pool, teaching pool, leisure pool with waves and flume, as well as changing facilities, a café, multipurpose sports hall with retractable seating, fitness suite and a dance studio.

Bam Construction regional director Doug Keillor said: "This is something of a return visit for us as we are sitting on the doorstep of Clydebank College, which we completed in 2007 and, which really started the regeneration of this area.

"We were selected for our strong track record in delivering this type of project but this is a challenging site as we are virtually in the river and it’s a complex and futuristic design, so we won’t be resting on our laurels."

West Dunbartonshire Council leader Martin Rooney said: "Clydebank has a proud sporting history and this centre is going to hone the next-generation of sporting talent.

"It marks the start of a new chapter for Queen’s Quay and I think we are all excited to welcome the first of our residents to the new centre in 2017."
