The design has evolved from the desire to construct an iconic bespoke building to incorporate a wide range of sport and leisure facilities. The design is intended to convey a ‘private sector’ feel and to distinguish it from a standard ‘off the shelf’ solution.
The new leisure facility is hoped to inspire all who use it and make a positive statement to the community. The building has been sited on a previously undeveloped part of the site currently used as playing fields.
The orientation of the build will minimise the impact on local residents as the mass of the building will be viewed as a diminishing profile rather than a continuous static mass. The building will also help to shield residents against the light spillage from the sports pitch.
A new vehicle access off Coppice Road will provide direct access to the car park and ancillary areas with segregated routes for cars and delivery vehicles including coaches. A new pedestrian route links up with the existing pedestrian routes to maintain access form Lichfield Road and Brownhills Road.View our blog
We place a high value on maintaining good relationships with our neighbours, and as we are going to be part of your community we will be providing updates on site progress on a regular basis via this website and ISG newsletters.
We are a socially responsible contractor and one of only a handful of companies invited to become an Associate Member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme which promotes responsible working practices within construction.
We will endeavour to take your needs into consideration and hope that we can work together to make this a successful project with minimal disruption to our neighbours. The first planned CCS visit at Oak Park Leisure Centre is June 2015.View CCS scheme
