Culture

In May 2004, Thornton Heath's historic Victorian baths were demolished[1] and replaced by a more modern sports and leisure centre.[2] It cost £8 million to build, of which £2.8 million came from the British National Lottery Good Causes Fund through Sport England.[2][3] The project was supervised by Croydon's Director of Environment, Culture and Public Protection Steve Halsey.[4] Huntley Cartwright (Chartered Quantity Surveyors) provided a Quantity Surveying Service, and assisted the council in obtaining the Sport England Grant, as well as managing the OJEU process for selecting tenderers.[1] In early option appraisals, consideration was made to whether the existing centre should be refurbished or redeveloped.[1] However, it became clear as work on the ground got under way that the old building would be demolished in its entirety.
