Works completed at Arun Leisure Centre

Works completed at Arun Leisure Centre

Clarkson Alliance have worked on two separate projects with Arun District Council in the last two years managing refurbishment works at Arun Leisure Centre, Bognor Regis. The refurbished centre was officially opened on 22 September. The services are part of the council’s initiative to improve leisure facilities in the local area, in part achieved by ensuring that space for leisure is used in the most effective way.

The second stage of refurbishment work, carried out in partnership with leisure operator Freedom Leisure, included a new café and reception area, increased seating capacity and improved changing facilities. The completed centre has also received energy conservation work which will reduce energy consumption and running costs, including new energy-efficient lighting....
