Andover Leisure Centre, Hampshire

Completion Date June 2009

Contract Value £25m

Client Test Valley Borough Council

ArchitecturePLB was invited by South West Hants LIFT to assist in the production of a detailed strategic analysis, examining the potential options for the re-provision of the Andover Leisure Centre, on behalf of Test Valley Borough Council. The challenge was to provide an enhanced leisure offer with the added community benefit of co-located new build healthcare and other facilities. Our approach was to seek to maintain and improve upon the existing ‘civic’ sense of the area, creating generous public spaces and promote connections that extend beyond the confines of the site boundary.
