Located in Port Talbot, Wales, the new Aberavon Leisure & Fitness Centre is a replacement for the previous, much loved Lido that was destroyed by a fire in 2009. It consists of a main pool (25m x 17m) with a split length moving floor and boom and a learner pool (17m x 8.5m), which includes a children’s slide and water cannon feature. Other facilities include a large multi sports hall, spin room and dance studio.
B+W was responsible for the design and specification of the system as part of the design team contracted by Corban Developments, who had been awarded the re-development by Neath & Port Talbot Council. Each pool has its own dedicated water treatment and filtration system based on medium rate sand filtration with chlorine disinfection, pH correction and UV sterilisation.
B+W also secured the supply, installation and commissioning of the associated filtration and water treatment plant and moving floor by competitive tender to the selected construction contractor Heron Brothers. This is B+W’s first project with Heron Bros Ltd and it has been a great success.
