Clacton Leisure Centre,
The leisure centre was extended and
altered in 2007 to include a new health spa, dance studio, spinning room
with improved changing facilities.
This challenging project was designed and
built under a very tight programme. The new two-storey spa building has
a new spa including a bathing pool and a variety of wet rooms. It has a
steel frame supporting composite concrete floor slabs and mass concrete
pad bases with reinforced concrete tie beams against the original
The new dance room was created with the construction
of a new mezzanine floor in an existing gym hall. The new floor has
composite steel beams with concrete slabs to allow a large internal
space below with just four internal columns near the perimeter. The
floor slab was designed to limit the deflection and frequency of
vibration for use a dance floor.
