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 was appointed to design, supply install and commission the new Myrtha hydrotherapy pool (8m x 5m) and filtration water treatment plant. This is the second pool B+W has 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 contemporary audio and visual sensory equipment, including four tracking beam projectors.
