Cheshire Wellness swept the board when it came to the SPATA innovation award for innovation in pool building.


The company took gold and silver in the category and won further praise for its installation at one of London’s most stylish pools. The judges said the pool had a unique lighting design that the customer wanted to incorporate into the pool, however lighting like this had never been done before.


“Working with the architect and a lighting specialist the Cheshire Wellness team were able to achieve the look the client wanted and a truly unique pool”.


One of London’s newest hotels now has one of the capital’s most stylish and hip pools- thanks to Cheshire Wellness.


The award winning pool design and build business, more widely known as Cheshire Spas and Pools, completed the project close to the 2012 Olympic Park.

TANBY RENOVATE KIDNEY SHAPED LONDON POOL TO TAKE GOLD


When Tanby Pools met on site with the owner of a London swimming pool it was like going back in time. The client had an existing kidney shaped pool that Tanby built in the 1970’s for the previous owner.


While it was structurally sound and did not leak, the appearance was dated.


Due to the shape of the pool installing, any cover would have been awkward and the pool was not often heated and rarely used. It was a decision to either fill in this pool or transform it to something the family could use. The owner wanted a modern looking and contemporary design, ease of use, low maintenance and reduced running costs. The finished pool won Tanby the gold award for the year’s outstanding renovation project. The task agreed in October 2010 also had to be completed ready for the summer. “Rather than let the awful weather throughout the winter delay our extremely tight schedule, we erected a marquis over the entire working area,” said Delyse Borley from Tanby Pools. By lifting the existing pool surround they were


able to create a rectangular pool footprint with the kidney shape and lounging areas and shelves within it. With the automatic safety cover tracks fitted beneath the new slate copings the entire pool and shelves would be covered when the pool was not in use.


By installing an acrylic round spa at the end of the pool opposite to the cover pit, installed below the level of the cover tracks, they added a spa for all year round use either with or without the entire pool being opened.


Heritage Pools won the silver award and David Hallam the bronze.

and Convention Centre in East London’s Royal Victoria Dock.


The unique LED lighting system is certainly a feature of the 11 metre by 4.5 metre pool. Maurice Brill Lighting Design, international lighting experts, created an LED system for the pool which featured spectacular vertical and horizontal strip lighting all around the pool. It was a special feature which created problems in terms of cables and fittings to get the ultra modern look the hotel was looking for which fitted in with the spectacular design of the whole hotel.
