Thorncliffe Health & Leisure Centre, Sheffield

This exciting new £7million development, in High Green, Sheffield, incorporates a six lane 25-metre swimming pool, learner pool, and major fitness suite.

The centre also forms part of the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine (NCSEM).

The NCSEM is a major new Department of Health Olympic Legacy project designed to deliver education, research and clinical services from three hubs in London, East Midlands and Sheffield.

Being an NCSEM facility means that, as well as operating as a leisure centre, the Thorncliffe site features advanced health and research facilities, as well as treatment and consultation rooms.

The project received £1m National Lottery funding from Sport England, with additional funding from Ecclesfield Parish Council, Sheffield City Council and the NCSEM.

Clancy provided civil and structural, MEP and geoenvironmental professional services on the scheme.

Rapid procurement following instruction was a prerequisite. The site presented issues in terms of potential historic mine workings.

Clancy again worked in close collaboration with Pozzoni Architects with whom a number of leisure schemes have been completed post 2012.
