£11m university leisure centre deal up for grabs

An ВЈ11m contract to build a new leisure facility in Preston is up for grabs, after property consultant Drivers Jonas was appointed to manage the scheme.

The 6,000m2 development on the main campus of the University of Central Lancashire is set for completion towards the end of 2010.

Drivers Jonas will develop the design for the scheme, before shortlisting contractors, prior to tender at the end of this year.

The new facility will include a fitness suite, studios, sports hall and pre-school nursery – will open up future development opportunities for the University on the site of their existing leisure and nursery facilities.
