Orchard Leisure Centre
The Orchard Leisure Centre in Armagh re-opened its doors in January 2009 after an eighteen month, multi-million pound refurbishment. The new, superbly equipped centre, now offers a fantastic range of sporting activities and facilities making it one of Northern Ireland’s premier recreational centres.
Key features and benefits:
- Felix O’Hare & Co Ltd was appointed main contractor by Armagh City Council to carry out the redevelopment of the phased refurbishment and upgrading of the busy leisure facility which remained fully operational throughout the duration of the works.
- The existing leisure centre was located in a heavily urbanised residential area bounded by civic amenity areas and adjacent to main arterial routes in the city.
- The works comprised significant internal and external alterations to the fabric of the building which included new 1st floor accommodations with meeting/training rooms available for public use, new fully-equipped fitness suites, new pool facilities with viewing gallery, large soft play children’s activity village and multi-purpose halls with specialist sports flooring.
- We also provided the new facility with a complete mechanical and electrical upgrade and the finished development provides a new vibrant, much-improved facility fit for purpose for the local community and its sports clubs.
