BAM Construction expects to start work on a £20m leisure centre in Bridlington, Yorkshire, this January after plans were approved by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, UK.

The scheme will include a six-lane, 25m swimming pool, a small learner pool, a free-form pool, two water slides and spectator seating area for 150 people.

Leisure World facility will also house a changing village and a health suite with a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, foot spa and showers.

The centre’s design includes a 70-station fitness studio and a series of other studios for exercise, spinning, dance and yoga classes.

The facility will feature a six-court sports hall, two squash courts and a climbing wall, as well as a café acessible to centre users and non-users.

BAM Construction construction director John Phillips said the company aims to deliver economic benefits for the area by using local staff and local firms as far as possible.

"It’s our second major leisure project in the region, with Huddersfield Sports Centre under construction and three projects in Hull," Phillips said.

BAM recently built the £60m Leeds Arena in West Yorkshire for Leeds City Council.

Leeds Arena will function as a music and entertainment venue with a capacity for 13,500 people.

In addition to Leisure World and the Leeds Arena, BAM is working on the University of Salford’s School of Arts and Media building and a futuristic addition to the University of Oxford’s Middle East Centre at St Antony’s College.
