Wates Construction has won the contract to build a new £33m leisure centre and swimming pool at Braywick Park in Maidenhead, Kent.

Designed by architects Burke Rickhards, the new centre will replace the ageing Magnet Leisure Centre with a modern facility, which will combine a number of leisure services under one roof.

The futuristic centre will feature an indoor street and winter garden running through the spine of the building.

Facilities include a 25m, 10-lane swimming pool – with moveable floor – training and splash pools and a health club with a 200-station gym floor, two dance studios and an indoor cycling studio.

There will also be four squash courts, six outdoor netball/tennis courts and a 40m x 60m floodlit all-weather 3G pitch.

Scheduled to open in late 2019, the centre will be owned by Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

The design will have a focus on sustainability and is set to use 70 per cent less energy than the Magnet centre.

Councillor Samantha Rayner, cabinet member for culture and communities, said: “This leisure centre will provide a fantastic new venue for residents and visitors to enjoy.

”The development will create new opportunities for sports and a brand new space for performances for the whole community.

“This cutting-edge leisure centre will help residents of all ages and abilities lead healthier and happier lives as we build a borough for everyone.”
