The pool complex required up-grading. The works encompassed a bulkhead to the pool, reducing the 33m pool to a 25m pool with learner facility but maintaining competition facilities. New suspended ceiling over the main pool area; new roof and refurbishment of the changing areas, consultation on introduction of a flume. Roof and cladding works to minimise condensation and prevention of deterioration to the structure and fabric of the building.
To maintain facilities at the pool in order to maximise revenue it was decided to divide the works into a number of small contract packages thereby reducing the closure period.
