The world class Aquatics Centre in Aberdeen Sports Village has been completed and will open to the public in Spring 2014. Barr + Wray were appointed in 2012 to deliver the water treatment package and water features. The £18.2M Centre is part of the Aberdeen Sports Village development, building on the success of the £28 million regional sports centre which opened in August 2009. B+W’s involvement included the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the Filtration and Water Treatment Systems for both the main 50m x 25m x 2m deep competition pool and the 25m x 16m x 5m deep diving pool.
B+W were also responsible for the design and installation of an air cushion system and a surface water agitation system – the latest in diving pool technology. Two separate UV Filtration and Water Treatment Plants provide the ability of cross connection for maintenance purposes. The aquatics centre will provide competitor seating and spectator seating for 600 and a full timing / video analysis lab will also be in use for both pools connected via B+W’s plant room.
