A new secondary school and separate leisure centre complete with a 50m Olympic-standard training pool, 6 court sports hall, fitness and dance studios. Our masterplan also included a Primary Care Trust that was being funded and constructed by a separate agency.
The principal idea was the creation of a public plaza and adjacent internal atrium area around which were clustered the public functions of the 3 main users i.e. the leisure centre; the dining area, hall and LRC elements of the secondary school; the Primary Care Trust. This creates a vibrant synergy of uses and is a very positive addition to the community. A forward thinking funding solution by Milton Keynes Council made this project possible and our joint clients were the Radcliffe School, a Foundation status school, and the Sports and Leisure department within Milton Keynes Council.
