With the clock ticking down, space by space, the Sports Centre is taking on a new feel, as rooms are completed. This week the squash court liner was filled with sand and the line markers put in place. Next will be the painting of the top section and the floor going down. The rear staircase is also now near complete, with just the balustrades and flooring to go.
In the main hall, painting and finishing continues and the final fix of the mechanical and electrical services is taking place.
Outside, the kerbs stones that retain the paving have been fitted and weather depending, the slabs will go down this weekend. The path around the building is now level and ready for the final surface.
The first sinks have been installed, including the trough sinks in the main changing rooms. The changing room showers are nearly complete and those in the staff changing room are now being installed to.
Lots still needs to be done, but day-by-day areas are being finished and snagging has begun.
