Following a devastating fire at Kenwick Health and Leisure facility in October 2014, the replacement ClubSpa at Kenwick welcomed its first guests this summer.
The £5 million refurbished spa in Lincolnshire has a stunning octagonal centre piece pool hall featuring a 20 x 8.5m pool with additional baby and learner sections and a 5 x 3m outdoor hydrotherapy pool.
Grayfox Swimming Pools were tasked with the design and build of the pool, spa, hydro-spa and H+V system, ensuring that it was incorporated as seamlessly as possible into the new facility.
Steve Jones of Grayfox Swimming Pools explains: “This brief was simple; we were asked to improve upon what the client had before and make the leisure facility reflect the hotel’s reputation for excellence.
“We improved on the design of the pool and functional systems and modernised the entire concept somewhat. We also added an internal overflow spa alongside the external hydro-spa.”
Steve adds: “Operating in a design and build capacity as part of a larger design team, we had input into all key aspects of making the entire facility flow. We are all extremely proud of the finished product.”
As well as tight time constraints, Steve explains that the plant room presented the biggest challenge for the team: “We had to get very creative in the plant room area as the requirement was to fit the filtration systems for the main pool, spa and hydrotherapy pool into a space that was originally designed for just one – a challenge that we rose to.”
