This is the first wellbeing centre in Northern Ireland that comprises complementary leisure, education and health facilities. It includes a community library, a 25m six lane swimming pool, dry leisure facilities and primary care provision, all beneath one undulating green roof.
The building creates a focal point for the community, not only combining a wide
range of community services but also promoting healthy living with the objective of preventing costly health intervention through early prevention and diagnosis.
