Community Centre Extension Progresses In East Lothian

Construction News Image
A key extension to Port Seton Community Centre in East Lothian is beginning to take shape.

This £1.094m project will see a new sports hall extension completed following a feasibility study and feedback from the public.

Hadden Group has been working onsite since October 2019 and has since completed the steel frame and laid the foundations for the project.

The erection of the steel frame in place is a key milestone in the project's delivery and gives the local community an indication of the size and scale of the extension.

Following his recent visit to the site, Community Wellbeing Councillor Jim Goodfellow said: "Port Seton Centre is a much-used and valued facility in the heart of this community and there has been a long-held desire to expand its footprint to increase leisure access. Our investment will support existing services and also allow new activities to be developed. I'm pleased to see the progress that has been made so far and look forward to watching it continue to take shape."

Steven Brady, Hadden Group Managing Director, added: "We're pleased to have been chosen to deliver this new sports facility for the Port Seton community which continues our excellent working relationship with East Lothian Council. Our construction team are progressing well with the build and we look forward to delivering a first-class community asset."

The Port Seton Community Centre extension is expected to be completed by late July 2020.
