Coventry City Council is on the hunt for a builder to deliver a £26m water park, swimming pool and leisure centre.

Coventry swimmingpool
The Fairfax Street sport centre has been recommended for closure by Coventry City Council

The landmark new complex will replace an existing council office block on a tightly constrained site next to the city’s Grade II-listed Christchurch Spire.

FaulknerBrowns has been appointed to design the building, which will house a 25m swimming pool, a water park with slides, 120 station gym, climbing wall, squash courts and health suites.

The facility will replace Coventry’s existing Grade II-listed 1966 central swimming pool, which will close once the new structure opens in 2019.

US firm Water Technology Inc, which specialises in water park developments around the world, has been appointed to design the pools and indoor features, which could include racing slides, flumes, wave pools, rapids and wet play equipment.

Desco are providing mechanical and engineering services, and Engenuiti structural engineering design with a work to works beginning on site at the start of 2017.

Firms interested in the two-stage bid process can find prequalification documents on the council tendering website or contact Peter Curtis by email.
