DROMORE COMMUNITY CENTRE
COUNTY DOWN, NORTHERN IRELAND
Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council invested over £2M into this public sector project, which has completely modernised the centre, creating a spacious, multi-purpose fitness facility suitable for all ages and fitness levels with full disability access throughout.
The refurbishment included the construction of a 715m2, two-storey extension to accommodate a new purpose built fitness suite and gym, fitted with state-of-the-art exercise equipment on the upper floor. Special 80mm high impact flooring was laid in the gym to alleviate damage from free weights. New football changing facilities, with capacity for four team rooms, was provided on the ground floor and the heating system was upgraded with highly efficient radiators and enhanced with heat recovery units.
The squash courts were converted into a dual-purpose mini bowling alley, children’s party and community room, while the old gym will now be used as an additional multi-purpose exercise studio. On completion, Piperhill carried out additional landscaping and the construction of the centre’s car park.
