Belfast Leisure Transformation Programme – Bringing it to life, Belfast

About this event

In 2012 Belfast City Council agreed a £105million Leisure Transformation Programme for the city of Belfast, which is being delivered at no additional cost to the ratepayer.  Among the project’s guiding principles are a focus on health and well-being outcomes, value for money and balanced investment, people and partnership.

Presenter Martin Doherty, from Belfast City Council, will address the Council’s approach to delivering the programme from development of the initial strategy through to construction of the new centres.  He will talk about management of the programme, wide-ranging stakeholder engagement undertaken by the Council, design development, use of BIM, procurement and construction.
