Places Leisure Eastleigh centre

Places Leisure Eastleigh is a state of the art leisure centre in the heart of Eastleigh that opened at the end of November 2017 for people of all ages and abilities offering memberships and pay & play options.  The centre, which is being designed and built by Interserve in collaboration with AHR Architects for Eastleigh Borough Council

Places Leisure Eastleigh, which replaced Fleming Park, offers an eight-lane, 25-metre swimming pool, a gym, ballet studio, squash courts and a soft play area. There's also an outdoor all-weather pitch, three improved five-a-side pitches and four full-size tennis and netball courts.

Steer Design specified the FF&E for Places Leisure Eastleigh working in conjunction with AHR to ensure that the interiors and FF&E created a wholesome and connected design. The FF&E scheme needed to offer a variety of seating, robust design and excellent quality to stand the test of time against the number of visitors and types of conditions such as chlorine they would be exposed to. The scheme had to present a high end leisure facility while also facilitating groups such as schools.

The FF&E supplier was Momentum of Cardiff who offered excellent choices, advised on the best materials and installed on time all while liaising with Steer Design and the project team.
