The new £7 million facility comprises of a 25-metre, 8-lane competition pool with spectator seating for 300 people, a fun pool and adjoining teaching pool. The project had been in the planning stage since 1999 and the Local Authority are delighted to see it finally completed.
B+W was responsible for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the main and learner/fun pool filtration and water treatment plants.
The two-stage procurement period for the project was extended due to a change of site for the facility; this led to an extensive re-design of the building. Official opening of the project was carried out by world and paralympics gold medalist, Giles Long MBE and children’s TV favourite, Spongebob Squarepants.
