BSP’s work in this market involves a diverse range of leisure-based projects within both the public and private sectors, including new build and refurbishment schemes for leisure centres (including swimming pools), new football academies to meet grass-root sports targets and major branded holiday village projects with accommodation, administration and sports/leisure elements.
The importance of this sector is underlined by: sport’s economic contribution valued at £20.3 bn in 2010; its contribution to health – reducing the risk of a range of chronic conditions including coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, obesity and mental health, but also combating the costs of health treatment (estimated at £900m in 2009/10), and its contribution to social issues, helping to reduce crime, enhance social activity and strengthen social networks (source:sportengland). With this forming the background, it is understandable why this sector forms an important part of the development mix.
BSP also has experience of projects which are major tourist attractions for heritage, museum and historical manufacturing clients who tell the story of the creation and evolution of their products.
We provide the support clients need to make this happen. Whatever the project, our cross discipline blend of creativity, innovation and technical excellence coupled with a practical building approach will deliver striking and cost effective results.
