CWA appointed for Sparkhill Leisure Centre project

A multi-million pound project to bring an out-of-use Birmingham swimming pool and leisure centre back to life will be supported by city centre civil and structural engineering consultancy CWA Ltd.

The Great Charles Street consultancy has been appointed to carry out the civil and structural engineering work on the new Sparkhill swimming pool and leisure centre in Stratford Road.

The project involves the demolition of the old building and the construction of a new facility on the site.

CWA, based in Lancaster House, was brought on board by contractors Pellikaan who are building the new centre on behalf of Birmingham City Council. The new centre will be run by Places for People Leisure Management.

CWA director, Jim O'Donnell, said the consultancy was pleased to be contributing to a significant community project.

He said: “The new centre will be a valuable sport and leisure venue for the area, which has been deprived of such facilities for nearly five years following the closure of the old baths and leisure centre. The building has been sensitively designed to complement neighbouring buildings”

CWA Ltd was established in 2011 as Copeland Wedge Associates. The consultancy provides civil and structural design consultancy services to sectors including leisure, residential, education, health, industrial, retail, infrastructure and public bodies.

Major clients include Willmott Dixon Construction and Housing, Balfour Beatty, Seven Capital, RO Developments, Prologis, IM Properties, Morgan Sindell, Seddon and Bullock Construction.

The company has delivered buildings for major end-user clients including West Midlands Police, Birmingham City Council, Coventry City Council, Northamptonshire County Council, Housing 21, Midland Heart, Rooftop Housing, Orbit Homes, Chevin Homes, Wrekin Housing, University of Warwick, AstonUniversity, Coventry Sports Foundation and Marks and Spencer.
