Rund Partnership Limited has been appointed as Project Manager to act on behalf of Portsmouth City Council in managing the design, construction, and completion of the redevelopment of Mountbatten Leisure Centre. Including the entrance, reception, café, multi-use rooms and preparatory work for the installation of Soft Play and creation of Clip & Climb Facilities. New technologies were installed to bring the venue up to date and improve the operational functions.
Mountbatten Leisure Centre is Portsmouth’s flagship centre and among the best-equipped facilities on the south coast. The premises incorporate a 50-metre pool, 150-station gym, sports hall, and outdoor cycle and athletics tracks. We have assisted the client in improving the facilities and augmenting the opportunity for health and wellbeing to the local community.
The works have been procured on the basis of a JCT Intermediate Building Contract with Contractor’s Design 2016. We worked closely with the venue’s operator BHLive (Enterprises) Limited and the design team to fast-track the construction whilst developing design aspects to optimise the performance and aesthetics of the completed work.
Our effective stakeholder management and contract administration methods allowed the project to progress within complex premises with multiple functions. Our analysis of tenders and financial control of design changes ensured value for money for the client.
