Clapham One Centre Part Of Multi-Million Regeneration

Above: The filtration systems at the Clapham One Leisure Centre along with moveable floor and submersible boom were designed and installed by F T Leisure Limited.

A new multi-million pound public leisure centre has opened – the first of its kind in Lambeth for more than 30 years. The Clapham Leisure Centre on Clapham Manor Street includes a six-lane 25m swimming pool, fitness gym, sports hall and dance and fitness  studio. It is part of an £80m regeneration of Clapham High Street, including a library and medical centre. The leisure centre and the library have both been provided at no cost to the public purse, funded by the sale of private residential development on both sites; a 19 flat block on Clapham manor Street and a 44-unit block of affordable housing on the same site. Clapham One is a two  pool complex (Main pool & Teaching pool). The main pool is a 25m x six lane pool built to ASA standards, with a 2.5m deep  section provided by a 8m moveable floor and submersible boom system. The 13m x 7m teaching pool also contains a moveable floor, providing maximum functionality of the 2 pools, providing for all levels of swimmers. The main contractor responsible for this project was Morgan Sindall and the project architect was LA Architects. Both pools have dedicated filtration systems, with a chlorine donor and ph control system, combined with UV sterilisation. The filtration systems, moveable floor and submersible  boom were designed and installed by F T Leisure Limited, a business borne out of the former Thermelek Engineering Services Ltd.
The majority of FT Leisure’s work is local authority. The team currently has 23 live new build leisure centre sites. The team also  runs a maintenance department that look after more than 170 existing pool facilities, the majority of which are local authority  pools.
