The project.

Strood Sports Centre has undergone a major refurbishment worth £1.9 million, transforming it into a more modern, spacious and inviting facility for all of Medway to enjoy.

The state-of-the-art fitness suite is double the size of the previous one, and there are new fitness studios that will host an exciting new programme of classes.

A brand new reception space has been formed, to provide the centre with a modern and clean entrance, welcoming the visitors to the facilities. Works on the changing areas and café facilities mean that the sports centre is more bustling than ever before.

Strood Sports Centre boasts more than 100 pieces of cardiovascular equipment, free weights and abdominal strengthening stations, along with new equipment including a Functional training zone, a Trixter indoor cycling and a power plate. The centre also has a new health suite with sauna and steam room.

Throughout the development of this project, the main driver was to ensure that the sports centre kept running throughout the construction phase. Therefore, a logistics plan was implemented and the scheme split into a number of distinct phases. This allowed the centre to continue and maximise their revenue stream throughout the period.

The scheme also included replacement of the changing room cubicles, poolside, and this required careful time allocation during the installation period.
