In Harrogate, the existing Hydro centre will be extended and refurbished to include a 400 sq m fitness suite, a new sauna and steam suite and overhaul of the existing pool and leisure facilities.
Energy-efficient, air source heat pumps will replace the existing gas boilers.
The project will be carried out in phases with the refurbished pool hall and changing village re-opening in January 2023 and the ‘dry side’ activity space completing by April 2023.
In Knaresborough, a new-build leisure and wellness centre will provide a six-lane 25m pool, sauna and steam room, fitness suite and café.
The centre will be built to a BREEAM standard of ‘excellent’ and will incorporate high efficiency building materials, air source heat pumps and solar panels to reduce the carbon footprint.
Work is due to be completed by July 2023.
