Focus Consultants is playing a key role in improving leisure facilities in Cambridgeshire.

The company was appointed to provide construction consultancy services for the fast-track refurbishment and alteration project to Burgess Hall Events and Conference Centre in St Ives.

The centre, run by One Leisure, the in-house leisure provider for Huntingdonshire District Council, has undergone a replacement of the bar, floor and toilets as part of a wider rebranding and redevelopment programme to provide modern leisure facilities. Huntingdonshire District Council has invested more than £10 million at a number of centres, including St Ives, in the past five years to provide high quality leisure centres to meet public demand.

“The refurbishment was carried out within a challenging programme with limited access due to ongoing events,” said Focus Consultants building surveyor Chris Smith.

“The project team worked together to successfully complete in time for a planned 90s night, featuring boy band Five. Positive feedback has since been received from the public, now that the work has finished.”

Now Focus has also been appointed to provide construction consultancy for the refurbishment and alterations to the One Leisure St Neots Swimming Pool in Cambridgeshire, which is due to start shortly.

“Focus has wide experience of providing construction consultancy services in the leisure sector, and we are delighted to be playing a role in upgrading and improving facilities in Cambridgeshire,” added Chris.

The work has been handled by the Boston office of Focus, which has its headquarters in Nottingham and branches in Leicester and London.

Focus offers a range of services to the property and construction industry, including building surveying, quantity surveying, project management, and sustainable development support.
