Romford Leisure Topping-out Ceremony

Hosted by Simon Cook of Willmott Dixon, AKS Ward were invited to attend the formal topping-out ceremony for the £28M flagship Romford Ice Rink and Swimming Pool complex on the 17th May 2017.

The construction includes an eight-lane pool for competitions, gymnasium, and first floor 56m by 26m ice rink; the new home for the ice hockey team, the London Raiders.

The topping-out ceremony also included senior representatives of Havering Council, the client project team, key trades, and Willmott Dixon.

It provided a good opportunity for the client to take some PR photos for the local press and allowed the client and client teams to take a walk around the site to see the work in progress, followed by drinks and refreshments afterwards. Praise was well received for AKS Ward’s structural solution to a complex build. The estimated completion for works is December 2017.

Further reading can be found at New Steel Construction Magazine, featuring our substructure steelwork model. An article on the London Raiders and construction progress of the Romford Leisure Centre have been published in the Romford Recorder.
