NEWS IN BRIEF


PLANS REVEALED FOR ICONIC WELLNESS RESORT St Michael’s Hotel and Spa in Falmouth, Cornwall have revealed £25m plans to expand its facility into a progressive complex. The project would see the current hotel and spa become part of a larger facility using the site of the former Falmouth Beach hotel, which suffered fire damage in 2012. Using designs created by Cornish architects Poynton Bradbury Wynter Cole, the site is planned to become an iconic beachfront development resembling an ocean liner. The resort would encompass a new destination spa featuring seven treatment rooms, a beauty salon, swimming pool with extensive relaxation areas and a new conservatory.


The spa development would also house a large hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steamroom, experience rainforest showers, relaxation areas and an outdoor Finnish sauna.


If plans are approved, it’s thought work could start as soon as early 2015.


COUNCIL BUYS SITE FOR NEW CITY CENTRE POOL AND LEISURE CENTRE A plan to build a major swimming pool and leisure centre on the site of a Bradford city centre engineering firm looks like it has moved a step closer.


The plan for a new city centre pool forms part of a wider shake- up of leisure facilities across the district.


The centre would have a 25-metre, eight-lane main pool, a learner pool and a diving pool, with associated games and studio space.


If built, the new pool would replace the ailing Richard Dunn Sports Centre which had previously been described by Bradford Council’s executive member for sport as a ‘black hole’ in the authority’s finances. The shake-up also includes proposals to close or pull out of local community pools at Bingley, Bowling and Queensbury, and open three new ones in different areas.

Dedicated Heatstar Engineers Provide After Sales Service Nationwide


It is ironic that a product with the proven quality and reliability of Heatstar also has arguably the best after sales support in the UK. The phrase “belt and braces” springs to mind but for Heatstar the quality of the after sales service is just as important as the quality of the product.


Heatstar believe that after sales support nationwide is so vital that it is something that can never be left to chance or, for that matter placed in the hands of any third party. Heatstar, therefore employ their own team of dedicated engineers, completely knowledgeable about the products and equipped with vans stocked with all necessary equipment and components. To have complete control over the scheduling of every single after sales site appointment is a priceless commodity which Heatstar’s customers have come to appreciate.


It is also worth noting that when a Heatstar engineer visits a site, they are always aware that they are representing the trade installer. Heatstar’s centralised service management also permits a number of other services to be offered. Planned maintenance agreements are available on all Heatstar products and the price of these agreements are the same throughout the UK. Gold, Silver and Bronze levels of maintenance agreement are available: With Gold cover the equipment is routinely serviced twice per year. In addition, should any maintenance work be necessary, the unit would


be repaired without charge for parts, labour or attendance. With Silver cover the equipment is again routinely serviced twice per year. In addition, should any maintenance work be necessary, the client would only be charged for the cost of any parts used with no charge being made for labour or attendance. With Bronze cover the equipment is also routinely serviced twice per year. However, should any maintenance work be necessary, the client would be charged for the cost of any parts used and for labour and attendance.


These service and maintenance contracts are renewable annually and there is no obligation for the client to commit themselves to a contract prior to the initial manufacturer’s warranty expiring. The costs of the contracts vary depending on the model. Even top quality and reliable products like Heatstar benefit from planned, regular maintenance. By providing maintenance contracts Heatstar can ensure that the equipment is properly maintained and serviced by fully qualified Heatstar engineers with an in-depth knowledge and experience of the products. This in turn offers complete peace of mind to the end user and demonstrates the after sales service and support offered by the installer in conjunction with Heatstar.
