We may all be working harder – but we’re all playing harder too. What's more, the lines defining some leisure locations from workplaces are also blurring, with demands and trends changing quickly: we're also working and playing smarter.

For instance, a coffee shop used to be somewhere to switch off - now it's somewhere to switch on, utilising their power sockets and wifi, of course. It's normal.

But so too is a vast array of leisure activities. That makes it a massively competitive market, with fast-growing levels of investment. So it isn’t just the building that has to be eye-grabbing, but so too must be the deal: focus on design quality and occupational use are crucial.

At McBains we understand the delicate balance between the external appearance that sells a facility, its internal use of space – and the presentation of its design. Flexibility of approach is key.

Our leisure teams are experienced at making the outside environment inspiring and the inside innovatively usable. Both looks and facilities send signals to target markets. We have the skills to satisfy all the complexities of your requirements which in turn are dictated by user expectations

That can be the management of major new leisure developments, to roll-out and refurbishment programmes and the intricacies of maintenance of existing premises and facilities, whether hotel, pub, bar, restaurant, gym, swimming pool, theatre, art gallery museum or places of worship.
