Eco building designed to blend in with landscape

A series of pods designed by S&P Architects to house a leisure centre have opened in Scunthorpe.

The development for North Lincolnshire Council includes a swimming pool, fitness studios, a sports hall and function rooms and also contains a biomass boiler.

Council leader John Briggs said: “I’m very pleased that The Pods is now fully open to the public. The facilities are excellent and must be seen to be appreciated.

“Since the doors opened to the public it’s been very busy and received some very positive comments about the facilities.”
