Everyone Active Basildon Sporting Village is an impressive sports centre in Essex, which features a wide range of world-class sporting facilities.
The sports centre was developed via a joint public and private partnership scheme between Basildon Borough Council and Community Solutions for Leisure, a subsidiary of Morgan Sindall Investments.
[Interview with Paul Brace, Basildon Borough Council’s manager of leisure services, to include:]
The objective of the project was to have not only a local facility, for local people to use, but also a facility that could play it’s part in the region. We’ve succeeded in doing that. And we also wanted a centre that had the ‘wow factor’ that broken down those perceptions of a normal public leisure facility. It’s bright, it’s vibrant and from the minute you walk in the front door there is that wow factor.
With value-for-money high on the list of priorities, Glidden Trade was selected when it came to a number of key areas within the project. In particular Vinyl Matt was used in the Sports Hall as it’s ideal for large applications in commercial structures and is available in over 3000 colours
[Interview with Richard Kemp, supply chain manager at Morgan Sindall] In particular on this scheme value for money was very important. The council gave us criteria to fullfill and the Glidden trade range provided the best solution.
Glidden Trade Endurance Anti-Slip Floor Paint was selected to cost-effectively add to the health and safety credentials of the centre. A professional quality, ready-mixed coating it provides consistent, textured finish that has been classified in accordance with the Health & Safety Executive guidelines.
Since opening its doors to the public, the village has met with widespread praise and has acted as a catalyst of regeneration for Basildon.
