Adult Spa, Children’s Pool, Gym and Food & Beverage Extension
- Project Value: £1.4m
- Project Programme: 26 weeks
The project scope on yet another Club Company project for J M Scully included the installation of new kids pool a new spa, sauna and steam area along with an upgrade and extension to changing areas, new plant to existing pool and new facilities. We also completed an extension to F&B areas and the 1st floor gym area along with general refurbishment works to other key areas of the facility.
As is often the case on these projects the J M Scully team are asked to work within a live environment and minimise any impact to the existing staff and clients. This project was no different and the team were required to maintain a live swimming pool throughout the works whilst having a hoarded wall and excavations taking place on the other side. The project was phased and the club remained operationally intact for the whole duration. New balance tanks were installed for the kids pool and hydrotherapy pool. New main pumped sewer connection with its associated challenges of keeping the system live. We were also required to install large steel frames and connections to the existing building.
Some of the major challenges on this scheme included management of the Pool contractor on this fast track project along with a confined working area, due to the live environment. The team overcame this through adopting a collaborative planning approach, minimising disruption to the members and undertaking key tasks out of hours/at night along with ‘just in time’ deliveries due to restricted storage space.
The client worked with the team 100% and fully understood all the challenges that the team faced, the end result was “stunning”
