Urmston Leisure Centre, Greater Manchester

HL are appointed as the civil and structural engineer for this project to extensively refurbish and extend Urmston Leisure Centre. The new community facility will provide a state of the art 100 station fitness suite, group exercise studios, café & soft play and a clip-and-climb wall.


The structural design of the extension is constrained by the requirement to connect to the existing 1990’s building, which will be partially demolished before a new steel frame is constructed to the front and within the existing building.


Working with the project acoustician, HL completed an advanced footfall analysis of the proposed fitness suite structure to ensure that vibrations are within acceptable levels.


In addition to structural engineering design HL have completed the design of S278 highway works and new carparking.
