A range of important works have already been completed on site, however delays with contract management have impacted complete demolition of the centre. At this stage, we expect to begin larger-scale works from mid-winter. This delay has impacted our expected opening date, which is now early 2021.
To minimise the impact of these delays, we have started early works on site, including:
- emptying all pools in line with City West Water regulations
- undertaking hazard audits that involve demolition of walls, floors and ceilings
- removing and relocating equipment to Neighbourhood Fitness Hubs and other leisure centres
- undertaking complete environmental tests such as soil and ground conditions
- auctioning of assets and equipment to reduce items going to landfill.
