Places for People Leisure are Attending This Year's LGA Conference

We're delighted to be at this year's LGA conference in Bournemouth from 5-7 July on STAND P59.

 

Is your leisure provision costing you more than it should? Our focus at this year’s LGA conference is Design, Build, Operate and Maintain contracts and the benefits that they can provide local authorities. Find out how we can help your organisation ‘create active places and healthy people’ and reduce your revenue costs.

Places for People Leisure’s 2016 LGA Stand Design – Come and see the stand for yourselves at this year’s event!

In the last 10 years we have designed and built 14 new centres equating to over £140 million investment by our Local Authority partners, with £10m invested by Places for People Leisure. In addition, a further £20m of capital is envisaged to be spent during the contract period on these facilities by Places for People Leisure. We have industry leading expertise in this aspect of local authority leisure management and would be delighted to share this with delegates of the 2016 LGA conference when they visit our stand.

We work closely alongside a dedicated project team of architects, project managers, construction companies and subcontractors to offer Local Authorities ‘One Complete Solution’ to new design and builds that is in synergy with the Local Authorities requirements and vision for the site. Our construction partners Pellikaan will be in attendance at the conference on Tuesday 5th July and our architects Roberts Limbrick will be available Wednesday 6th July to answer any queries on design and build.

Talk to us about how Design Build Operate and Maintain (DBOM), PPP (Private, Public Partnership), and facility rationalisation contracts provide Local Authorities with:

• A reduction in revenue costs.

• State of the art leisure facilities; making them a destination of choice.

• Increased efficiency and therefore an improved customer offering and service.

• Increased participation and physical activity levels; the benefits and examples of which can be clearly   evidenced.
