Work has started on a multi-million pound project to revamp some of Swansea’s most high-profile leisure facilities.
£5.1m is being invested by Swansea Council to bring new life and vitality to the LC Swansea and the city’s five community leisure centres.
The partnership approach will see a further £600,000 invested by Freedom Leisure, the not-for-profit leisure trust that runs the facilities for the council.
The overhaul and works programme, which will benefit tens of thousands of customers, is being managed by experienced project management business Clarkson Alliance.
Energy efficiency measures are being installed by Leisure Energy, an award-winning company dedicated to helping the leisure industry reduce costs and environmental impact.
Investments will include a full upgrade of gym facilities at the LC Swansea with the creation of a new functional training zone. In the autumn there will be a modern re-working of the food and drink offering.
The centres benefiting along with the city centre LC Swansea are those at Bishopston, Morriston, Cefn Hengoed, Penlan and Penyrheol. The improvements are being complemented by the introduction of high-spec Technogym equipment within renewed and refurbished fitness suites across the facilities.
