Spelthorne Borough Council has signed a £43.5m deal with Willmott Dixon to deliver a Passivhaus leisure centre project in Staines-upon-Thames, Surrey.

The firm will work alongside Passivhaus expert Gale & Snowden and architect GT3 on what will be the second wet and dry Passivhaus leisure centre in the country.

The centre will feature a rooftop 3G pitch, sports hall, gym and competitive, learner and splash swimming pools.

Alongside the core features, the design also includes a mini spa, studio space, Clip n Climb and a community café.

Mark Gowdridge, director at GT3 Architects, said: “We are working ever closer to the Passivhaus certification for our design, which will save up to 60% in energy costs and ensure the building is futureproofed.”

The client team includes project manager Gleeds with Van Zyl & de Villiers M&E engineers and Engunuitti structural engineers. Faithful & Gould is cost manager for the 100,000 sq ft project.
