The Emirates Arena Spa, including the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, will act as a host venue at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
The 5,000-seat indoor arena features a hydraulically operated 200-metre running track, jumping and throwing areas, a warm-up straight and sports halls. The 2,000-seat velodrome houses a 250-metre high-banked cycle track with multi-use infield area. A ‘hub’ housing ancillary facilities links the arenas.
The scheme included a five-star spa facility which was designed, manufactured and installed by B+W. Brought on board in the early stages of the project by Glasgow City Council, B+W worked alongside architects 3D Reid to perfect the design aesthetically and operationally. The main feature of the spa is the stainless steel vitality pool with hydrotherapy attractions which is surrounded by a host of thermal experiences and relaxation spaces.
Equipment designed and installed by B+W includes; a sauna, herbal sauna, aroma steam room, caldarium, a stainless steel vitality pool with a UV water filtration treatment system and stainless steel attractions such as an air recliner, neck massage and combined tub.
