Dovercourt Bay Lifestyles is a state-of-the-art leisure centre located in Harwich, Essex, England. It was designed and procured by Ingleton Wood on behalf of Tendring District Council, and opened its doors to the public in 2022.

The new leisure centre is a significant investment in the local community, and provides a wide range of facilities for people of all ages and abilities. It includes a 25m swimming pool, a teaching pool, a gym, fitness studios, a sports hall, a climbing wall, and a soft play area.

Design

Ingleton Wood worked closely with Tendring District Council to develop a design that would meet the needs of the local community and deliver a high-quality leisure experience. The design team took inspiration from the local coastal landscape, and created a building that is both visually appealing and sustainable.

The leisure centre is built on a sloping site, and the design incorporates this to create a sense of arrival and anticipation as visitors approach the building. The main entrance is located on the upper level, and offers panoramic views of the coastline.

The building is clad in a mix of materials, including timber, glass, and metal. The timber cladding gives the building a warm and inviting feel, while the glass and metal elements create a sense of lightness and transparency.

Ingleton Wood also managed the procurement process for the Dovercourt Bay Lifestyles project. This involved working with Tendring District Council to develop a procurement strategy, select a suitable contractor, and manage the contract throughout the construction process.
