BAM secures another major leisure centre scheme

Chiltern District Council has appointed BAM Construction as the preferred bidder to build its Chiltern Lifestyle Centre in Amersham. Work on the circa 36 million leisure facilities is set to commence towards the end of November. It will open by the end of 2021.

The scheme includes an eight-lane 25-metre swimming pool with viewing, sports hall, dry diving training facility, squash courts and climbing wall, gym, exercise studios, and a library and community centre, among others.

BAM is currently finalising the contract with Chiltern District Council, and is presently operating under a pre-construction agreement. The project was procured competitively under the Southern Construction Framework.

The current leisure facilities are over 50 years old and described by the local authority as being in urgent need of repair. The old buildings will be demolished and Amersham library has been temporarily re-located.
