This is the fourth successful project undertaken for Waverley Borough Council alongside Godalming, Farnham and Cranleigh leisure centres.

While the original centre was successful in its own right, it suffered from limited dry-side facilities and lacked visibility from the street.

With the opportunity to respond to both of these issues at the same time, the scheme developed to infill a large recess on the front elevation with a new two-storey glazed extension, providing a large new studio space at ground floor and extended fitness suite above. The whole first floor extension is encased in a dramatic and eye-catching oxidised copper surround.

In addition, a new soft play area, reception, retail space and pool hall refurbishment has helped rebrand the centre into a premium leisure facility.
