Work is due to start on Wakefield ONE - a new £10m swimming pool and fitness complex in Wakefield - today (6 June) as part of the local authority's wider regeneration plans.

Willmott Dixon Construction has been chosen to build the NPS North East-designed venue, which will be located on Sun Lane and is due for completion next summer. Drivers Jonas Deloitte is also involved with the scheme, which will include the creation of a six-lane, 25m pool; a 13m x 7m learner pool; a 100-station gym; and a multi-use studio.

A spectator viewing area; an executive meeting room; Changing Places facilities; and a café will also form part of the complex, which will offer disabled access throughout. Wakefield Council leader Peter Box said: "The state of the art sports facilities and attractive new building will be another great asset for the city, particularly coming so soon after the opening of the Hepworth Wakefield and Trinity Walk."

Drivers Jonas Deloitte assistant director Paul Denson added: "Wakefield ONE will be open at just the right time to coincide with the London 2012 Olympics."
