Freemans Place Leisure Centre, Durham

Client : Morgan Ashurst

Project : Construction of swimming, leisure and fitness facility

Application of specialist floor screeding and wall rendering for 25-metre main pool, learner pool and changing village in newly-built leisure and fitness centre, a flagship project for City of Durham Council.

A specialist team from Tabner Plasterers Limited, of Middlesbrough, is putting down specialist floor screeding for ceramic tiling in the wet areas of the facility, which reduces the risk of users slipping as they move about the pool and changing facilities.

Managing Director Dave Tabner says: "Far from being the finishing touches to the swimming pool area, the application of specialist flooring are very important elements, both in terms of the finished appearance of the facilities and their safe use by people of all ages.

"We are delighted to be a part of creating a sport and leisure facility that will provide pleasure for generations of city residents and visitors."

Tabner has also completed all wall rendering for the main pool, learner pool and changing village as part of the contract, awarded by main contractor Morgan Ashurst.

The leisure centre, in Freeman’s Place, Durham, is expected to be open by the scheduled date of the first weekend in July and will replace Durham´s existing 1930s-built city baths, on Elvet Waterside.

It is located alongside Durham Sixth Form Centre and the city’s new Walkergate, leisure/hotel complex. The sixth form centre will have shared-use of the facility during term time.
