B+W is delighted to have been involved in the long planned
development of this leisure centre which will assist the
cultural renewal of Romford.
Working alongside Willmott Dixon as the main contractors for
the £25 million flagship Romford ice rink and swimming pool complex, B+W was responsible for the design, supply, install and commissioning of the 8-lane
competition swimming pool and 15-metre learner pool filtration systems.

hockey team, London Raiders, who will return to the facility for training and
home matches to take place at the new ice rink (56m x 26m).
Residents and visitors are invited to the grand opening of
the leisure centre on 3rd February 2019, where Dancing on Ice champion
and former X-Factor contestant Ray Quinn will take to the ice to perform.

is a fantastic facility that will have a really positive impact on the local
community, and I hope that Ray will help to inspire more people to give skating
Guests will get to enjoy a day packed of activites such as
skating sessions, family fun swims and exercise sessions.
The open day will also see the Raiders return to play their
first game there since April 2013.
Cabinet member for culture and community engagement
Councillor Melvin Wallace added, “The health and wellbeing of our residents is
a priority for the council and this facility is great for the future of sport
and leisure in Havering.”
