The Belfast Leisure Transformation Project is a £105 Million investment by Belfast City Council to improve leisure centres, programmes and services. This is a unique opportunity to improve the health and wellbeing of the city, by delivering state of the art facilities that meets the needs of the communities.

Heron Bros completed work on three state of the art leisure facilities including, Lisnasharragh Leisure Centre, formally known as the Robinson Centre, Brook Leisure Centre and Andersonstown. Each Facility offer a unique selling point which will encourage people to move across the city to use the different facilities.

These USPs include an aquatic centre at Lisnasharragh, including eight lane gala pool with 250 spectator seats and diving pool with moveable floor. Brook Leisure Centre focussed on outdoor sports with a full size 3G Gaelic and Soccer pitch with 6 five-a-side pitches also available. Andersonstown is now the go to Leisure centre in Belfast for family fun, with a large family focussed wet area, slides and the first Surf Simulator in Belfast.


Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Considerate Constructors Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.

The Scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce, and the environment.

Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive, Amanda Long said: “Whilst it has been unfortunate that we were unable to host in-person award ceremonies due to coronavirus, we look forward to seeing how sites will be celebrating their achievements through social media and other communications. Achieving any level of CCS National Site Award requires dedication, effort and commitment to raising standards of considerate construction and we are delighted that many CCS-registered sites have achieved the exceptional level of performance in order to receive a National Site Award this year.”

We are proud to announce the Belfast Leisure Transformation Project has won a further two Silver Considerate Constructors Awards in the £10m-£25m category adding to the award Andersonstown Leisure Centre won in 2019.

“This was a unique and complex project with a wide range of challenges throughout,” said Senior Contracts Manager, John Paul Higgins. “We are incredibly proud of our whole project team and their dedication to operating our construction site to such a high standard. The positive feedback and reaction to the new leisure centres has also made it all worthwhile. We’re committed to investing in the Considerate Constructors Scheme across our projects and recognise the value it adds to our business and the communities in which we work”.

Heron Bros previously secured a highly revered Gold Award in the Considerate Constructors Scheme for the construction of Ards Blair Mayne Wellbeing and Leisure Complex. They also won the coveted Most Considerate Site at the National Site Awards in 2017 for their work on Foyle College and Ebrington Primary School & Nursery.
