Investment in new wet side changing at Kingfisher Leisure Centre

Createability has completed work on a £450,000 redevelopment of the wet side changing rooms at Kingfisher Leisure Centre in Kingston Upon Thames.

The centre, which is managed by Places for People Leisure (PfP) on behalf of Kingston Council, is undergoing a complete refurbishment of its changing village, jointly funded by Sport England and PfP.

Leisure design and build specialist Createability has reconfigured the existing space to include more lockers and cubicles, including family, group and disabled changing, as well as additional toilet facilities. Individual shower cubicles have also been included in the main changing area design, as well as a refurbishment of the existing pool side drench showers.

“The new design is more family orientated,” says Ian Cotgrave, Managing Director of Createability. “There was limited space to work with but we have managed to fit a lot in, including a number of shower cubicles within the main changing area, enabling customers to wash in private after their swim.”

The swimming pool remained open throughout the work with temporary changing facilities set up in the centre’s squash court and lockers in the gym and cafe area.
