Construction has begun on a £33m leisure centre and swimming pool at Braywick Park in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Designed by architects Burke Rickhards, Braywick Leisure Centre will replace the ageing Magnet Leisure Centre with a modern facility, which will combine a number of leisure services under one roof.

Leisure facilities will include a 10-lane, 25m swimming pool, a training pool and large splash area for children.

The centre's health club will house a 200-station gym floor, a separate health suite, two dance studios and an indoor cycling studio.

There will also be four squash courts – which can be reconfigured into a flexible studio space – six outdoor netball/tennis courts, a soft play area and an 80-cover café with views of the pool.

Outdoor facilities include a floodlit 3G pitch.

The design of the "futuristic centre" – featuring an indoor street and winter garden running through the spine of the building – will have a focus on sustainability and is set to use 70 per cent less energy than the Magnet centre.

Scheduled to open in mid 2020, the centre will be owned by Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, which has appointed Wates as the construction partner to undertake the building work.

Councillor Samantha Rayner, cabinet member for culture and communities, said: “This leisure centre will provide a fantastic new venue for residents and visitors to enjoy.

”The development will create new opportunities for sports and a brand new space for performances for the whole community.

“This cutting-edge leisure centre will help residents of all ages and abilities lead healthier and happier lives as we build a borough for everyone.”
