Work on Derby’s Moorways Sports Village reaches major milestone

Construction work on Derby’s new 50m swimming pool and water park has reached an important milestone, with the completion of the steelwork and main structure of the building. 

Contractors can now move on to cladding and internal fit-out, as the development moves towards opening in spring of 2022.

Progress on the site in Allenton, has been maintained despite early challenges with storm water flooding and the need to ensure a Covid-safe environment for the workforce.

The team has excavated the tank for the  swimming pool and created the basement plant room area. The structural frame of the water park pool hall, soft play, gym and café elements of the build are also now complete.

Work commenced on the Derby City Council scheme in February last year and, when completed, it will significantly enhance the city’s health and leisure offer.

Alongside the 50m pool, which can be split into three 25 metre pools, to give greater flexibility, there will be a learner pool and a water park, featuring two four-storey flumes, along with England’s first wave-generating wow ball and wave rider slide. There will also be an indoor water playground area with mini slides and water jets.

The spacious, modern gym will be fitted out with the latest equipment and there will be three health and fitness studios, as well as sauna and steam rooms. A café and soft play area for young children complete the offer.
