This pre-existing private member sports and fitness club was transferred to public use and required substantial remodelling to reflect its new use. The two existing swimming pools and changing village were completely replaced (including the entire subterranean structure of the pools) and modernised, together with all associated mechanical and electrical installations. The construction of the pools was by means of a water resisting concrete structure with all works being carried out in controlled conditions within the existing building envelope.
Improvements and enhancements to fenestration included a number of bespoke large curved rooflights over the pool area. the existing ground floor reception area and cafe, together with the first floor fitness suite/studios remained in full use throughout the course of the project. A number of pre-planned out-of-hours service shutdowns were undertaken commencing at midnight, with completion of the planned works enabling the Centre to re-open at 6:30 a.m.
