Dalesauna Delivers High Quality Finishes For Health Spa

A college in Nottinghamshire has invested millions of pounds in a new campus with a health spa to meet the rising demand for spa education. Vision West Notts, formerly known as West Nottinghamshire College, has invested £11m in a new extension to accommodate students who want to study hair, beauty and spa courses. The 4,000sq m learning space includes a specialist health spa.

Spa and wellness expert Dalesauna was appointed by the main contractor, Mansell Construction Services, to design and equip the spa’s 140sq m thermal area. Its brief was to provide a facility that would allow the delivery of the NVQ Level 3 Diploma Spa Therapy curriculum, a vocational course which prepares students for work in spas and salons. As well as an educational facility, the spa operates commercially to equip students with vital industry experience while also providing the college with additional income opportunities. The brief therefore also called for high quality fixtures and fittings to meet the needs of the public. As such the new health spa includes a pine sauna, steam room, spa pool, a Rasul Mud

Treatment and a relaxation area with tiled heated loungers.

The finishes also needed to be aesthetically pleasing yet practical. Porcelain tiles from the SistemN range by Marazzi Tecnica, supplied by Swedecor, have been used for the floor and wall coverings of the spa circulation area. In the steam room, Dalesauna employed a high gloss ceramic rectangular mosaic tile from Waxman Ceramics’ Smart range on the walls. The pale grey contrasts with the almost black, recycled glass mosaic of the bench seating from Trend. A 100-point fibre optic lighting feature creates a twinkling starlight effect to complete the room.

In the Rasul, walls are finished in polished porcelain. The sand-coloured tiles from Ariostea have the appearance of composite marble, while the bench seat is finished in a dark copper glass mosaic from Trend. The design also features

stripe detailing in a glass and natural stone mosaic in copper bronze as well as a 20mm thick natural marble shelf with a full bullnose edge, which was cut to template by Marble Building Products.

Interlocking glazed porcelain tiles in white and grey combine with glass and natural stone mosaic, both from Waxman Ceramics, and a 20mm thick natural marble podium top in white/grey Carrera marble in the ice feature. Finally, the monsoon shower contrasts a striking orange glass mosaic in a gloss finish with an almost black recycled glass mosaic in a silk finish, both from Trend. LED lighting floods the shower with a vibrant red light when hot water is in use and a cool blue for the cold water experience.
