£15M

The cost of new leisure cen­tre

Oldham Advertiser - - BIG PICTURE -

YOU can now keep a close watch on the de­vel­op­ment of the new Old­ham sports cen­tre thanks to time-lapse tech­nol­ogy.

A spe­cial cam­era has been in­stalled on site, at the junc­tion of Manch­ester Street and St Domingo Street, to cap­ture the progress of con­struc­tion on film.

Regenol­ogy, the company be­hind the tech­nol- ogy, will be col­lect­ing high def­i­ni­tion footage of the work to col­late it into a spe­cial film – per­fect for his­tor­i­cal doc­u­men­ta­tion, pro­mo­tional films and be­ing streamed di­rectly over the in­ter­net.

Richard Over­ton, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, said: “We are de­lighted to have been ap­pointed to pro­vide our time-lapse ser­vices to the new Old­ham Sports Cen­tre.

“When com­pleted in au­tumn 2015, the cen­tre will bring ma­jor ben­e­fits to the lo­cal com­mu­nity. It will be fan­tas­tic to be able to cap­ture its pro­gres­sion on film.

“Our ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence means we have the know-how needed for com­plex and de­mand­ing projects, in­clud­ing large scale re­gen­er­a­tion and con­struc­tion projects re­quir­ing mul­ti­ple cam- eras and years.”

Once com­plete, the £15m leisure and sport­ing venue will boast a 25 me­tre eight-lane swimming pool with spec­ta­tor gallery, eight-court sports hall, 80-sta­tion fit­ness stu­dio and four-rink in­door bowls area.
