Stadia & Leisure

Market Overview

The leisure sector continues to be big business for the construction industry and Lakesmere has an enviable track record of successful performances on a variety of jobs from large stadia contracts to the new generation of recreational facilities and various projects that will play vital roles in the London 2012 Olympic Games.

As well as enjoying significant boost as part of the preparation for the Olympics, the stadia and leisure market continues to thrive with support from both commercial developers and local authorities, with many projects forming part of wider regeneration programmes. The trend towards multi-use leisure stadia and arenas that provide revenue throughout the year and ‘one-stop’ leisure complexes that combine entertainment facilities with restaurants and hotels, has also helped raise the profile of the sector that often enjoys as much public scrutiny as it does investment.

Skills & Expertise

The sheer scale of many stadia and leisure projects means that in many cases, it is the roof or building envelope design that often becomes the main visual focus. As such, it is vital to choose a specialist contractor such as Lakesmere that has the technical expertise, competence and confidence to successfully deliver such large contracts. Lakesmere’s extensive experience of using a large range of products as well as its ability to create bespoke solutions has also proved vital in the creation of projects that have more than one function and so often have conflicting requirements.

In a sector that is subject to strict planning restraints, important safety regulations and the need to keep on schedule and to budget, Lakesmere’s specification and procurement skills along with its promotion of supply chain collaboration have helped to bring many iconic schemes to life on both a regional and national level.
