20Springfield School in Cheshire provides outstanding educational care for children and young people with complex learning difficulties.

A vital ingredient is the recent addition of a modern, purpose-built sports barn that includes a large energy saving pool, to complement the existing hydrotherapy pool.

Portrait Pools created and installed a contemporary deck level 10m x 5m commercial pool, that complements the bright and airy new pool hall with its adjacent sports hall and gym.

Springfield School is delighted with its new energy saving pool facility and commented: “The sports barn project with its new pool is now completed and up and running. “This was an ambitious project which will bring many benefits to the pupils at Springfield and the local community for many years to come.

“It is making a real difference to what we can offer our pupils. It is also a source of income generation which helps pay for the running costs.”

Portrait chose Heatstar XF EC 3000 Plus for environmental control. The XF EC unit is a high efficiency heat recovery ventilation system that utilises fresh air introduction to provide natural dehumidification while the recuperator maximises heat extraction from the expelled room air.
