The City Pool, in the heart of Newcastle, is a Grade 2 listed building. After standing empty for almost 8 years, restoration and refurbishment works began in 2018 to bring the building back into use as a Gymnasium and Swimming Pool together with the re-opening of the famous Turkish Baths and Steam Rooms.
J3 Building Solutions became involved in mid-2019 when various contractors, previously engaged were unable to progress and complete the project.
We became fully involved with all aspects of the refurbishment and achieved handover of the ground and 1st floor areas ( Gym areas, swimming pool and changing room / shower areas ), in early 2020 allowing the client to open these areas to the public.
Although we were able to complete a lot of the refurbishment works involved in bringing the Turkish Baths and Steam Rooms back into use, for reasons totally out of our control, we had to discontinue our involvement with the project after the above handover.
We are proud to be able to include this landmark project in our portfolio and that we were instrumental in bringing a historic and architecturally important Newcastle building back into use.
