A construction company is working to deliver a new leisure and cultural centre in Harpenden.
Willmott Dixon has a £17 million contract to extend and alter the existing swimming pool building in Rothamsted Park and to transform the adjacent sports facility into a 511-seat theatre.
The new swimming pool building will feature an improved main pool, a new 17m learner pool, a sports hall, dance studios and a larger gym, plus new changing rooms, a steam room, a sauna and a reception area.
Last year, the company also worked with St Albans District Council to turn the city's town hall into St Albans Museum + Gallery.
North London managing director Chris Tredget said: "The team are exceptionally proud of what we created in St Albans. We are keen to make a similar impact with our work in Harpenden to expand its leisure and cultural offerings to local people."
