Kenwick Park Spa takes building accolade once again
By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 27 Jun 2017
KENWICK Park Hotel’s reinstated leisure club has won another architectural award, the Best Large Commercial Project accolade at the East Midlands’ Local Authority Building Control Awards.
Replacing the original destroyed by fire in 2014, the win is added to the Development Project of the Year (under £5 million) gong at the Lincolnshire Construction & Property Awards.
Lincoln-based architectural firm LK2 worked with Gelder Ltd and engineering design services firm Alan Wood & Partners, at the Louth-area retreat.
Andrew Kitchen, director at LK2, said: “Being recognised at the LABC Awards is fantastic – as it shows that this scheme is not only significant locally but regionally too. We came up against some stiff competition on the night including significant schemes in Leicester, Newark and Rushcliffe, so this accolade is really special.
“Winning this title in the East Midlands is something we are very proud of and we are excited to see how the project fares during the LABC Grand Finals in November, where the scheme has been listed as a finalist.”
The new building has been divided into two distinct areas to house the spa and leisure club. As well as the restoration of the original dramatic pool hall, the building now boasts a state of the art gym and exercise studio, plus learner and baby pools alongside a thermal spa.
