Set in the middle of the town, the new leisure centre contains a 6-lane competition pool (25m) and a learner pool (13m x 7.5m). Other facilities include a 4-court badminton sports hall, two multi-purpose sports halls, fitness suite and training room, including a 6-lane running track and two 5-aside soccer pitches externally.
B+W was responsible for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the pools, associated filtration and water treatment plants and balance tanks. The pool shells are constructed using the pre-engineered stainless steel Myrtha pool system.
The water treatment plant includes provision for retrofitting UV units as a primary means of disinfection should it ever prove necessary as a result of higher than expected bathing loads.
The sauna and steam room in the fitness suite also formed part of B+W’s scope of works.
