East Midlands-based Focus Consultants has been appointed to
project manage a £3 million scheme to refurbish and extend a leisure centre. 
Work is due to get underway this summer on the development
at North Herts Leisure Centre in Letchworth and includes a new learner/teaching
pool, a café with a view over the pool, dance studio, offices, a ground-sprung
sports hall floor, refurbishment of the wet changing areas and more parking.
The aim of the project is to increase the life span of the
centre by another 25 years and improve customer services. 
Partner at Focus Consultants, Keith Butler, said: “Focus is
very pleased to have been appointed on this scheme, which is the latest in a
number of similar developments the team has been involved in. 
“The new extension will not only create extra space, it will
also allow the leisure centre to increase its swimming facilities, which is
good news for the people of Letchworth and the surrounding area.” 
The refurbishment is being funded by North Hertfordshire
District Council and the facilities are managed by a social enterprise,
Stevenage Leisure Ltd, which runs the centre on the council’s behalf, and is
due to be completed by the spring of 2016. 
It is being project managed by personnel in the Leicester
office of Focus, which has its headquarters in Nottingham and also has teams in
Holborn, London, and at Boston and Aubourn in Lincolnshire. 
The firm offers a
range of services, including funding and economic development, project
management, regeneration expertise, energy consultancy and chartered surveying
