SMC Charter's pool projects are major win in Ilford, London 

SMC Charter has been appointed by the London Borough of Redbridge for a major leisure development in Ilford with a total project cost of up to £27.5 million. It will consist of a 50 metre (Olympic-sized) swimming pool, with a learner pool and children’s fun pool, as well as a 12-court sports hall and extensive health and leisure facilities. In addition, a £7.1 million major swimming pool complex for The Borough Council for Wellingborough is now on site, and the company has also been appointed to complete a feasibility study for an Olympic-sized swimming pool by Ipswich Borough Council. SMC Charter is one of the few specialist practices in the UK with the expertise and experience in building pools of this size. SMC Charter is part of SMC Group plc. SMC Group plc announced that is had formed a specialist division, SMC Sport & Leisure to share resource and expertise from across all of the SMC Group practices, which would also enable the individual practices to come together on larger projects.
