Pool and plant design expert World Leisure has bagged the contract to provide a 20m leisure pool, spa, sauna and steam room for the £19.9m Village Hotel being built in Portsmouth.

The Leyland-based firm is working with construction company WillmottDixon on the project, which is being built in the city’s Lakeside North Harbour.

Due for completion in autumn 2017, the hotel complex will include 153 rooms, conference facilities and a leisure club with swimming pool, gym and fitness studio.

The hotel’s design has been billed as an “evolution” of the current Village Urban Resort offer, which are more compact and able to fit in with a “more central urban area” – generally smaller in size.

3DReid are the architects that have designed the resort.

The deal represents the strengthening of the relationship between World Leisure and Village Hotels. The pair have worked on four projects, most recently the latter’s site in Glasgow, Scotland.

World Leisure delivered a similar installation of a leisure pool, spa, sauna and steam room at the Glasgow site.

Simon Smith, managing director of World Leisure, said: “We are delighted to have won this contract, our fourth for the Village Hotel Group, and are looking forward to unveiling the completed facilities in autumn 2017.”
