Feb 2020 – July 2021
H.H. Smith were awarded the project to construct a formal lane swimming pool and associated changing village with DDA provision at Hyde Leisure Centre. The works included the modification and extension to the existing leisure pool. The 25m 6 lane pool with spectator seating and associated plant facilities link to and enhances the existing leisure facilities. The hard landscaping around the new pool was upgraded along with soft landscaping upgrades.
H.H. Smith were awarded the project following a competitive process. The brick constructed building sits aside the existing leisure pool which was to remain open throughout the works. Security and safety measures needed to be robust to ensure public protection. All deliveries, health & safety requirements, security, waste management and cleaning of the site was programmed, accommodated and managed on an ongoing basis throughout the duration of the works.
The works involved specialist installations, including both mechanical and electrical. The complex structure of the pool required specialist pipework and tanking. To achieve a successful outcome, extensive collaboration between the design and technical teams was essential. This involved regular meetings to finalise the works on site. The works were completed during the COVID19 pan-demic. The site remained open throughout and this was achieved by adopting new safe systems of work.
