As part of the construction of the new Braywick Leisure Centre, 100 trees have been planted to create a new woodland area in Braywick Park as part of the strategy to offset the carbon emissions generated by the build.

The trees were planted at a ceremony attended by local volunteers plus Cllr Samantha Rayner, Andy Wates director of Wates Construction and Alec Jackman, business unit director at Wates Construction.

Cllr Samantha Rayner, lead member for culture and communities at the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead said: “Ensuring our developments are as environmentally friendly as possible is one of our top priorities.

“The planting of these trees will offset the carbon emissions created by the construction of the new Braywick Leisure Centre while also creating a new green space for residents and wildlife to enjoy.”

Construction of the new leisure centre is now well underway and the foundation floor for the pool is now in place.   Clarkson Alliance are providing Development Management, Project Management and Cost Management services on the project.
