Elms Bank is a vibrant and forward-thinking secondary specialist school based in Bury, Greater Manchester. In order to extend the support and facilities they currently offer to their pupils (which include a sensory garden, multi-use games area and full-size football pitch and a Drama studio and Gallery shop), they have added a new extension and Hydrotherapy pool.
B+W were appointed to design, supply install and commission the new 8m x 5m Myrtha Hydrotherapy pool and filtration water treatment plant. This is the second pool B+W have delivered for Bury Council, the first being installed at Millwood Primary Special School in 2011. Based on the success and longevity of the pool at Millwood, which is still in fantastic working order, the new pool at Elms Bank was also constructed using Myrtha technology.
The pool also features a range of state-of-the-art audio and visual sensory equipment, including four tracking beam projectors.
