BAM to deliver £22m Clydebank leisure centre


BAM have been appointed by hub West Scotland to deliver a new £22m leisure centre on the banks of the Clyde for West Dunbartonshire Council.

Work has already started on the state of the art four-storey building, which will form a key part of the regeneration strategy for the area. Once completed in early 2017, the new facility will replace the ageing Play Drome on Abbotsford Road.

Designed by architects Kennedy FitzGerald Associates, the new leisure centre will feature a 25-metre swimming pool, teaching pool, leisure pool with waves and flume; changing facilities, a café, multi-purpose sports hall with retractable seating, fitness suite and a dance studio.

Doug Keillor, regional director BAM Construction said, “This is something of a return visit for us as we are sitting on the doorstep of Clydebank College which we completed in 2007 and which really started the regeneration of this area. We were selected for our strong track record in delivering this type of project but this is a challenging site as we are virtually in the river and it’s a complex and futuristic design, so we won’t be resting on our laurels.”
