Bruceshaw completes the New BH2 Leisure Complex
In January 2017 the much anticipated BH2 leisure complex in Bournemouth completed after a two year duration on site. The brand new complex is ideally located opposite the Hilton Hotel whilst also overlooking Bournemouth’s picturesque gardens.
The BH2 is home to one of Odeon’s flagship cinemas, with 10 state of the art cinema screens, including a giant ‘ISENSE’ screen measuring in at 16.5m x 7m (54ft x 30ft), accompanied by sound through 56- channel speakers, equipped with 4k ultra-high definition projection system.
There are plenty of places to eat on site including: Las Iguana’s, Ask Italian and Five Guys only naming a few of the 14 world-class restaurants at the Legal and General funded £30m leisure complex.
Additionally the leisure complex also boasts convenient car parking spaces for 175 cars underneath the center.
Bruceshaw provided full quantity surveying services on the project, working as part of a dynamic team to help deliver this high quality development
Max Davidson, Director from Lucrum Holdings, said:
‘We have worked with Bruceshaw on a complex and demanding project over a long period of time and see them as one of our key consultants in whom we can trust. Their hands-on, pragmatic approach to the management of the costs and the lengthy tender process has contributed to the project’s success and they have been integral member of the team. We have established a good relationship with the people at the company and will be looking to continue that relationship on future projects too.’
Bruceshaw is thrilled to have been a part of this transformation of Bournemouth Town Centre and to bring such a vibrant and exciting leisure complex to the area. The project involved a lengthy planning process over many years and Bruceshaw were alive to the need to update the scheme costs to reflect the changing economic circumstances during the lengthy pre contract period. We negotiated a secure contract sum on a design and build basis with the successful contractor which provided our client with financial security on this complex project.
