The investment from the Council will see the leisure facility extended and improved with a brand new state-of-the-art gym, additional studio spaces, a new café opening onto Hartham Common, a soft play facility, improved changing facilities and refurbishment of the pool hall.
Eric Buckmaster, executive member for wellbeing, East Herts Council, said: "We are looking forward to starting work on the redevelopment of the Hartham Leisure Centre. The project has been in the pipeline for some time and will really add value to the town and Hartham Common in general. The centre has been well used and the improvements to the facility will provide for future generations”
Planning permission was granted in December. Subject to a mobilisation period, works are scheduled to start at the end of March.
Stuart Cadman, who is the Managing Director at Cadman Construction Ltd., said: “The whole Cadman team are delighted to be involved in this strategic investment in health and wellbeing that will enhance community facilities for the residents of Hertford. Even more important following a year of disruption to the leisure sector, users will be able to get even more out of their upgraded facilities to enhance wellbeing, strengthen community ties and improve access for an array of community groups and clubs, aligned to Cadman Construction’s commitment to achieving optimal social value”.
Warren Doo, Director at Cadman Construction Ltd., said: “We are gearing up to start on site and are delighted to be working with an outstanding team of architects and technical advisors delivering this BREEAM “Excellent” build. This means a legacy of long-term sustainability in terms of carbon reduction and improved whole life costs of the building once operational.”
