Hunt begins for architect to design £20m Exeter pool

  • Comment

Exeter City Council is seeking a design team for a new ‘state of the art’ indoor pool and leisure centre

The £20 million project will replace the Exeter’s existing Pyramids pool in Heavitree Road with a new facility next to the city’s bus and coach station which is being redeveloped.

The winning team will deliver a feasibility study, consultation, concept design and detailed design for the new building which is expected to complete in 2018.

Planned facilities include an eight-lane, 25 metre competition pool with seating for up to 250 spectators.

A four-lane, 20 metre training pool and children’s play area is also proposed alongside a gym with 100 exercise stations and three flexible studios. A sauna, crèche and snack bar are also planned.

The building, next to the Paris Street, roundabout will occupy land currently used as a car park for the bus and coach station.

Land Securities and the Crown Estate are meanwhile planning a separate mixed-use redevelopment of the remaining 4.7 hectare station site.

The council’s existing swimming pool opened in 1939 and was renamed the Pyramids following an Egyptian-styled upgrade in the 1980s.

The deadline for requests to participate is 10 September.
