Community interest company LiveWire has appointed UK-based developer BAM Construction as the preferred contractor for the first phase of the £16m project for transforming the existing Great Sankey Leisure Centre in Warrington into a neighbourhood hub.

The sports centre, located at the western part of town, will be revamped into a state-of-the-art, integrated facility offering leisure, health and cultural services.

Design of the hub will be dementia friendly to support the community, and was developed after a consultation period involving more than 700 local residents. Suggestions from 60 participants have been incorporated into the final plan.

"We’re really looking forward to engaging people and creating something that will truly enhance the lives of everybody who lives here."

Scheduled to open to the public late next year, the centre will comprise a fitness suite, swimming pools, sports hall, tennis courts, 3G pitch, GP surgeries, a library, cafe, and health and well-being facilities, including a spa.

LiveWire managing director Jan Souness said: "We are pleased to announce the appointment of BAM as the contractor to carry out the development of the existing Great Sankey Leisure Centre to transform it into a modern, integrated facility for the whole community."

BAM construction director Ian Fleming said: "It’s very important to us to deliver this project successfully for the whole community, and not just to build a fantastic facility but to make the opportunity of the build itself into a positive experience for them.
