Morgan Sindall the Main Contractor for Adur & Worthing Councils project replaced the town’s existing 1960s Aquarena and the constructed a striking new £17.9 million centre, designed by award-winning architects, Wilkinson Eyre, which overlooks the sea.
The project boasts an impressive range of green credentials including; movable floors which also act as a pool cover when raised, maintaining water temperature and minimising heat losses in the pools as well as a heat recovery system to reduce pool heating costs. In addition, all the B+W systems pumps are inverter controlled allowing cost and energy savings to be made. The complex also features a ground source heat pump, which will use renewable energy to heat and cool the building.
The pools have Nemato regenerative filters which will create savings of 6,000m3 of water per year, while a grey water reclamation system will be used to supplement the supply to WC flush requirements. The filtration systems are fully PLC/HMI controlled and also include an interconnection system to allow full back-up running of each system from one of the others. In addition to the above B+W’s scope included the design, supply & commissioning of; UV water filtration and treatment systems for three pool areas - a 25m x 13m competition-standard swimming pool, 13m x 12m learner pool and free form leisure pool with flume and play facilities
