undefinedWigan Life Centre

The new leisure and public service complex, located on nine floors over two sites, has been described as “one of the most ambitious council projects every undertaken in the country.”

The scale and scope of the project demonstrates Demco’s capabilities of working collaboratively with partners throughout the design and installation process; from reviewing design statements, contributing to workshops and consulting with suppliers and contractors on design, delivery and product development.

Furniture, fixtures and equipment

This is a prime example of the scope of Demco’s FFE offer, from poolside seating, changing room furnishings, lifeguard steps and seating to dry side; counters, office furnishings, water coolers, clocks to microwaves and fridges and much more.

Design and delivery

Our design teams worked throughout the project with partners, attending planning meetings, workshops, making site visits and producing concepts to final drawings for approvals and sign offs. A co-ordinated ‘sample day’ gave everyone the opportunity to see products and furnishings in one place.

Collaborative product development

From concept to cuppa – we worked hand in hand with the architects to develop their conceptual ‘brew stations’, located in the shared breakout spaces.

Enquiry pod points

Through a consultative process we produced 3D visualisations and manufacturer drawings for these branded service points with integrated lighting.

Delivery and installation

The complexity of this dual site project made access particularly difficult. We carefully phased
deliveries not only kept furnishings protected from works damage but also that the installation was synchronised with building services.
