A major new renovation of the reception and team changing areas at Airdrie Leisure Centre is improving member and customer facilities.
The new reception area features an open layout, with modern furnishings and state-of-the-art technology. It features a bright and spacious touch-screen check-in area, comfortable seating, vending machines, meeting and relaxation areas.
Graeme Morrison, Estate and Facilities Manager said: “We’re delighted with the look and feel of the reception and changing areas which will enhance the experience for our visitors. As part of the upgrade, we have also improved fire safety, electrical and IT systems, lighting, plumbing and security systems.
“This £300k investment follows on from the recent £1.5m used to transform the outdoor synthetic sports surface and soon to be completed athletic track.”
Further phased improvements are planned in the coming months, including the refurbishment of the gym flooring, internal and external redecoration and roof replacement works.
“It’s great to see these changes benefiting members and customers,” said council leader Jim Logue.
"The new reception area is designed to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere and provide a quick and easy check-in for users. The new changing rooms make such a difference and provide first-class facilities for teams to use as they enjoy the outstanding outdoor pitches and running track.
“The difference from the old area is really striking and I’m sure customers will really like it.”
