Construction firm Morgan Sindall has completed a £19m redevelopment project to regenerate Stockbridge Village in Knowsley, Merseyside, UK.
The Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council scheme was carried out in five phases, transforming the village completely after commencing work on the site in 2010.
Under the project, Morgan Sindall has built a new primary school, a supermarket, a multi-use games area (MUGA), a library and a neighbourhood centre featuring leisure facilities, including a 20m swimming pool and high-tech gym.
The new neighbourhood centre features a steam room and sauna, a 30 station fitness suite, a community cafe, a court sports hall for basketball, netball, 5-a-side, boccia and badminton, a sensory room and two studios.
Morgan Sindall area director for Liverpool Barry Roberts said, "The new facilities stand to bring about transformational change in the heart of Stockbridge Village, providing local residents with fantastic, state-of-the-art amenities."
The project forms part of a £25m regeneration scheme developed by the Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council in collaboration with local residents and partners, to transform the village.
Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Economy and Skills Dave Lonergan said, "Stockbridge Village has seen a fantastic transformation over the last couple of years and what has been created here will be a lasting legacy for people in the area."
Morgan Sindall recently completed a £50m project to construct a Wigan Life Centre, a new public services hub for Wigan Borough Council.
The centre will deliver a range of council services and leisure facilities, with overall investment in the scheme totalling £217m.
