Building work began on the £35m Basildon Sporting Village in Gloucester Park North in October 2009. One year on, constructors say they are '100% confident' it will be finished on time in April 2011.
Work is almost complete on the externals of the building to make it water tight. Senior Project Manager Charlie Norris told BBC Essex it has been a 'complicated' project, but not overly trying for his team.
The Basildon Sporting Village will consist of a 50m swimming pool, sports hall, climbing hall, athletics track, floodlit five-a-side football pitches and gymnastics centre.
The 50 metre swimming pool will be the only one of that length in Essex. It will also be able to be split into two 25m pools. The pool has already been filled with water to check it is watertight, a process that took eight days.
The facility has been touted as a potential training venue ahead of the 2012 London Olympic Games. Although there have been visits from Olympic delegations, there has yet to be any official announcements.
Tiling of the main swimming pool began in mid-October 2010. Around 46,7000 tiles will cover the pool, a job which is expected to take four-and-a-half weeks to complete.
Tiling has already started on the learner pool at the Basildon Sporting Village. Special water resistant grouting is being used to ensure the tiles are not affected by the chemicals in the pool.
The Basildon Sporting Village will become home to the South East Essex Gymnastic Club, whose Danny Lawrence, Reiss Beckford and Max Whitlock starred at the Commonwealth Games.
A 750-seat grandstand overlooking the existing athletics stadium sits to the east side of the Basildon Sporting Village building. Much of the remaining work will now take place internally throughout the winter.
What are these?
