Building experts Wates Construction are set to start work on a new £6m leisure centre for Selby District Council, a news report in the local business media has revealed.

The future leisure centre will comprise a six-lane 25m competition swimming pool and a learner pool, a studio gym, sauna and steam rooms and an outdoor all-weather sports pitch. Furthermore, the leisure centre will feature energy efficiency measures to reduce running costs, including a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant and LED lighting.

The project has been procured through the YORbuild construction framework, through which Wates has pledged to boost local training and employment by providing a number of apprenticeship opportunities, totalling 88 working weeks with the site team.

David Price, Business Unit Director, Wates Construction, Yorkshire, commented: "We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver the new Abbey Leisure Centre through the YORbuild framework, which is facilitating the cost and time efficient procurement of essential public sector development works.

"We have an excellent site team in place that will work in partnerhip with Selby Council to ensure the new facility fulfils their vision for a state-of-the-art community leisure centre."

Taking into account the particulars of this future building, installing a solid and reliable access control system for it is something the developers should really take into account.
