Islington Leisure Investment,


Clarkson Alliance is providing project management, cost management, design and CDM-C services for the London Borough of Islington in a £6.2m project that will see the updating and upgrading of leisure facilities at five of its sites.

The project is managed in partnership with leisure operator and charitable social enterprise GLL and will deliver upgrades and extensions to the gyms and reception areas, new changing rooms and enhanced fitness areas of Cally Pool, Archway Leisure Centre, Sobell Leisure Centre, Islington Tennis Centre and Highbury Pool.

Clarkson Alliance was appointed because of our successful track record working with leisure trust partners and in particular our expertise in leisure energy savings.

New energy efficient measures are being introduced in the project as part of the local authority spend-to-save scheme. We have provided strategic counsel on several similar schemes, with the intention that the initial investment can create sustainable, longer term savings if the right procurement decisions are made.

A Building Information Modelling (BIM) solution was also adopted for the design stages of the project, allowing for accurate projection of completion and cost tracking thanks to the BIM models that are created at this stage.
