Springfield Leisure Centre
Our Bespoke Division worked extensively with our Dealer-Partner, as well as the client to achieve a large format, multi-functional, front-of-house reception desk. We designed the piece to maximise the use of the available space; manufacturing it in a tailored combination of serviceable materials that also adds visual impact to the impressive reception hall.

Springfield Leisure Centre is part of Springfield Community Campus in Corsham, Wiltshire, a community hub comprising of library, community hall, café, climbing wall, personal care room and many other meeting rooms as well as the leisure centre. Recently extended and refurbished, fit-out providers Elm Workspace invited Gresham to design, build, supply and install a modern reception desk for handling public enquiries and cash/card payments for leisure centre services.
Gresham’s Bespoke department worked with the space available to create a large-footprint reception desk, designed to provide ample space for multiple till/service points. To create an enclosed area within the centre of the extensive reception hall, Gresham designed an L-shaped desk measuring approximately 20 metres by 12 metres and an additional L-shaped feature back wall with toughened glass. The counter is finished in high-gloss Formica AR+ in Crystal White, providing sharp, clean surfaces durable enough to withstand high levels of public use. The desk also features integrated cash till drawers recessed into the work-surface, each with push-button open mechanisms. Subtle frosted glass shields protect workstation computers and help hide any cable clutter, maintaining a clean, open feel to the desk.
