Description

This new 14,500m² world class leisure facility houses an olympic-sized swimming pool, two competition-class sports halls, squash courts activity rooms and a gym.

Low energy, high efficiency systems have been designed to maximise heat recovery and free cooling to maintain comfortable space temperatures. The new combined heat and power infrastructure system delivers the energy to the building via underground flow and return heating mains.

The lighting systems are energy efficient with daylight linking, microwave dimmable controls and intelligent occupancy detection.

A 300m² photovoltaic array provides renewable energy as well as further offsetting CO2 emissions.
