Tender and Working Documentation

This project involved the demolition of a 1970s swimming pool and replacement with an expanded leisure complex, consisting of 25m x 13m main pool, 10m x 6m learners pool, freeform kiddies pool, sauna, steam room and viewing gallery. Adjacent spaces include reception, administration, and vending / viewing area, group changing areas, 50-workstation gymnasium and 30-person aerobics room.

The pool hall is placed on a N-S axis with a curved timber beamed roof. The two small pools are located to the south with full height curtain walling on east, south and west sides. The position of this element is within 3m of retained mature trees, bringing the exterior inside, creating an exciting juxtaposition within a bright, child-friendly environment.
