Conlon has been tasked with building a new leisure centre in Prescot to replace an old building that was demolished last year.
The project, worth £1.4m, was commissioned by Knowsley Council and will transform the existing site into a 500m² leisure centre with modern sports and fitness facilities, changing rooms and a coffee bar.
Whilst the work is being carried out, residents will be using alternative facilities at Knowsley Leisure & Culture Park, as well as the borough’s centres for learning.
Conlon will also be upgrading the outdoor football pitches on site, introducing seven caged all-weather, five-a-side pitches to replace the full size pitch.
Councillor Eddie Connor, cabinet member for Leisure, Community and Culture, said: “I’m pleased that work has commenced on site, which will deliver improved leisure facilities in Prescot for our residents – something we have always been committed to providing.
This latest investment will complement the work carried out a few years’ ago on the outdoor pitches and bring leisure facilities in Prescot up to modern standards.
Michael Conlon added:
We are very pleased to have been appointed as contractor for the new leisure centre in Prescot. The area is in much need of modern sports and fitness facilities and this development will add to the existing amenities for the benefit of local people.
