We are delighted to have secured and commenced a new contract for East Derbyshire Council through our Strategic Leisure Development Partnership with the Council.

The contract involves design and build refurbishment of the facilities at Killimarsh Leisure Centre. The £1.9m contract commenced on 22 November 2021 and works are due for completion in May 2022.

The refurbishment and remodelling works include:

  • New entrance, signage and painting to the outside of the building
  • Creating a new Fitness Class Studio Space, including virtual instructor provision.
  • Creating a new Cycle/Spin Studio
  • Creating a new Café to enable a food and beverage offer to users and the local community
  • Upgrading and expanding the fitness suite to 80 workstations, over two floors, set out with all the latest fitness equipment
  • A community ‘Changing Places’ facility – Changing Places Shower, Change and Toilet Amenity Block that meets the needs of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well as people with other physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis. The new facility will incorporate a ceiling hoist that covers the entire room.
  • A new multi-floor soft play kingdom with ball pits, slides and a safe area for toddlers
  • Installing new digital I.T. equipment to enable online membership and booking facilities for activities
  • Refurbished 3G football pitch with new fencing, lighting and multi pitch playing areas.

The works will make the Centre accessible for non-sporting customers and will be a great asset for the local community for everyday general use or to host children’s parties.

Matt Johnson, Pulse Design & Build Executive Director says of the new contract.
