Contractor BAM Construct will now start work this autumn on the £25m Bedworth Physical Activities Hub project located at Miners’ Welfare Park.
Designed by GT3 Architects for Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, the new hub will replace an existing centre, providing a new set of facilities that better meets the needs of the local community.
The facility includes a 25m eight-lane pool, 120 station fitness suite, two studios, a spin studio a café and multi-purpose room.
In addition, the surrounding park will undergo a major transformation with a focus on creating an active landscape that wraps around the new building.
There is a strong focus on cycling throughout the scheme, with British Cycling recently funding a series of new mountain bike trails in the park and a Cycle Hub within the building that will offer bicycle hire services for users.
There will also be a new all-wheels skatepark, learn-to-ride area and pump track provided as part of the approved proposal.
