Bingham Arena Build Update

Following a site visit to Bingham Arena on 6th July 2022 below is an update on how the build is progressing. 
 

Executive Summary from the contractors Willmott Dixon

The project is progressing well and we have hit some important milestones recently. It's great to see everything coming together. 

 

  • External facade complete – final rooflight to the Leisure building has been installed.
  • Block Paving – Much of the block paving for the carpark and around the building is now complete. External paving ongoing.
  • Plant room installation is complete – the highly energy efficient mechanical plant is now in position and ready to be commissioned.
  • Commencement of flooring – floors in progress to fitness suite, dance studios and spin rooms.
  • Filling the pool with water – using a new style pool, it will only need to be filled once saving tonnes of water.

We were lucky enough to be on site on Thursday 13 April to get an exciting update on the status of the new Bingham Arena.

Executive Summary from Wilmott Dixon
The project is progressing well, in spite of varying challenges around COVID and material and labour shortages that have faced the construction industry in recent times.  
We have hit some important key milestones and its great to see it coming together, with painting and tiling coming along you can really get a feel for the high-quality end product.

 
Key milestones coming up 

  • Scaffold coming down - Soon all external scaffold will be stripped, marking completion of brickwork and cladding
  • Mechanical plant delivered – The highly energy efficient mechanical plant is now in position on the roof and ready to be connected
  • Rainwater harvesting tank installed – this water will be re-used in the building
  • Filling the pool with water – using a new style of pool it will only need to be filled once! Saving tonnes of water waste
