£7.7m Northfield Leisure Centre opens as part of £40m leisure investment

By Tom Walker    15 May 2018
Facilities include a 25m swimming pool, teaching pool and a health club with a 75-station gym / BCC

The Northfield Leisure Centre in Birmingham has opened to the public on 14 May, as part of Birmingham City Council’s (BCC) £40m investment programme in the city’s leisure centre stock.

Facilities at the £7.7m centre include a 25m swimming pool, teaching pool and a health club with a 75-station gym and group exercise studios.

It is the third leisure centre to open as part of the BCC's £40m investment project and will be operated by Birmingham Community Leisure Trust (BCLT).

Designed by Calderpeel Architects, the centre was built by ISG Construction with BCLT overseeing the development. The new centre replaces an ageing facility which had stood on the site since the 1930s.

Jamie Bryant, partnership director for BCLT, said: "Although this is the third new facility we have completed in Birmingham, each project is an individual challenge and we are pleased to have worked successfully again with all our partners to bring the plans to fruition.

"As a nod to the old swimming pool building, which served residents of south Birmingham since 1937, we have incorporated some of the old stones in the construction of the new centre."

The Northfield centre follows on from the recent openings of two other new leisure centres in the city – at Stechford and Erdington.

The £40m programme will see one further centre open at a new site at Icknield Port Loop in Edgbaston.
