The Newcastle division of the international property and construction consultancy Henry Riley has been appointed as lead consultant on a £21m Morpeth leisure centre project.
Providing quantity surveying, employer’s agent and principal designer services, the company will help create the new centre, which includes a 25-metre swimming pool, sports hall, spa facilities, fitness suite and studios.
It will also have a new community services hub that will include a library, customer service centre and adult learning area, with construction work due to start next year and the centre open for business in 2021.
Henry Riley is also the lead consultant on a £20m project to build a new leisure centre in Berwick, with Advance Northumberland, the development arm of Northumberland County Council, acting as project manager on both schemes.
“Both centres will have top-quality facilities that will benefit residents of Berwick and Morpeth, as well as those living further afield,” said Joel Neasham, senior associate at the Newcastle office of Henry Riley.
“There’s a huge demand for this type of facility as consumers increasingly take up fitness and well-being activities to lead a healthier lifestyle. Health and well-being are important considerations for many people nowadays, so we’re delivering services that make it easier for them to adopt this lifestyle.”
