This is a multi-million pound project to extend and improve facilities at Woodford Leisure Centre, one of Hull’s largest local authority recreational centres, located on Holderness Road.
Hobson & Porter, as the main building contractor, is creating a new front elevation to the building and an extension to house a new reception area, a 25-metre, six-lane swimming pool and a 10-metre beginners’ pool.
The project also includes new sauna and steam facilities, improved changing rooms, a new café and a bigger and better car park. In the early part of 2017, the scope of works was extended to include replacing the roof of the existing building.
The centre will be closed for the duration of the project due to the extensive and disruptive nature of the works.
