£6.3m Market Rasen leisure centre reaches completion

Morgan Sindall Construction has handed over a £6.3 million leisure centre in Market Rasen, which has been designed and built in just over a year.

The state-of-the-art facility on Gainsborough Road will be operated by Everyone Active and is a cornerstone in the local authority’s strategy to improve the health and wellbeing of people in the area.

Work to build the 18,300 square foot leisure began last summer.

Designed by CPMG Architects, the centre is set over two storeys. Windows have been designed to maximise light and limit heat gain, to reduce the need for cooling and the building’s carbon footprint.

The centre will feature 40 pieces of Technogym cardio and strength equipment. A modern spin studio will feature 15 Kaiser cycling bikes. There will also be space and connectivity to allow instructors to deliver virtual classes to residents looking to pursue a healthier lifestyle from home.

Team sports and group activities are served by a 7,400 square foot sports hall and an external 3G all-weather pitch, while gym users will also have access to changing areas.

Councillor Giles McNeill, Leader of West Lindsey District Council, said: “I am delighted that the new West Lindsey Leisure Centre: Market Rasen has been completed by Morgan Sindall Construction, on time and on budget. Our partnership means that the people of Market Rasen and the surrounding area will benefit from a first-rate, brand new facility.

“The building is sited prominently on Gainsborough Road, which is the westerly entrance to the town, and makes an impressive statement about the confidence the district council has in the town as an important area now and for the future.”
