Here at Parkwood, we’re justifiably proud of our achievements and our centres. We adapt both our design and management approach to each and every centre, ensuring we are always learning new things while consistently honing our skills. Click on a case study below to find out more about some of the centres we have managed.
Crosby Leisure Centre
The Crosby Leisure Centre project involved building a landmark leisure procured under Private Finance Initiative (PFI) to replace the old Crosby Baths, demolished in the mid-90s.
Dereham Leisure Centre
The Dereham Leisure Centre project consisted of a new build, flagship leisure centre with extensive wet and dry facilities located in a prominent city centre location within Thetford town centre
A collaborative partnership was formed under contract between Erewash Borough Council and Parkwood Leisure on 1 February 2019; subcontracting the day to day operation and management of the people and facilities to our partner Charity Legacy Leisure.
Delivering sustainable savings and improving the reach and community impact
Sidcup Leisure Centre
As part of the three-centre £33m capital leisure investment commitment by the London Borough of Bexley Council, Sidcup Leisure Centre involved the new build construction of a state-of-the-art facility within the heart of the borough.
Spiceball Leisure Centre
This sports centre modernisation programme, procured under a Design, Build, Operate, Maintain (DBOM) contract structure, comprised works at three locations.
Torbay Leisure Centre
Parkwood Leisure commenced the contract to manage Torbay Leisure Centre on 1st December 2017 for 12 years. This is one of our newer partnerships and we already have an excellent relationship with Council colleagues and members.
BMS Occupancy Control
Despite the age of the building the site survey for Barry Leisure Centre identified that the existing building management system (BMS) controls were in good condition, and there was scope to harness significant energy savings by adjusting the BMS operating strategy.
LED Lighting Upgrade
The emergency lighting in the sports hall gallery area had failed its annual 3-hour duration test and required replacement. It has always been recognised that this was a low used area of space, occasionally used as a route to access the plant room and rear fire escape, however the existing lights were on all day due to lux requirements in the PFI contract and because the light switch was located behind reception.
The second year of our AWARD WINNING Triad Challenge was held between Nov 18 and Mar 19 to avoid peak electricity consumption, Triad’s. Triad’s occur during 3 half-hour periods throughout the winter when the UK’s national electricity demand is at its highest.
Variable Speed Drives
VSDs were installed on 3 main pool pumps and 2 learner pool pumps by Gibbons Engineering.
