Designs have been released by Coventry City Council for a new £37m water park complex, which will include a swimming pool and leisure centre.
The new complex will replace an existing council office block, next to the Grade II listed Christchurch Spire. Prequalification is currently underway to shortlist contractors for the construction of the main building, whilst US firm, Water Technology Inc has already been appointed to design the indoor features including the swimming pools.
It is also known that FaulknerBrowns has been appointed to design the building and initial designs of the building can be seen in the picture.
It is thought that the complex will include features such as wave pools, flumes and racing slides, climbing walls and squash courts, which sounds great and I know I will be visiting when it is completed in 2019. Planning is set to be submitted to Coventry City Council in May with work is set to begin in Spring 2017.
This is yet another great construction projects for the midlands area, as the area has also seen the green light given to construct the tallest tower in Birmingham and stats showing that office construction hitting a 13 year high in Birmingham.
This new complex looks like a really exciting project that will no doubt benefit residents of Coventry and nearby towns.
