Chelsea & Westminster Hospital
London Swimming Pool Company
Chelsea & Westminster Hospital’s hydrotherapy pool underwent complete renovation. The pool is used for rehabilitation of post-operative and injured people and the less able-bodied, enabling them to benefit from the therapeutic benefits of water.
The renovation project involved replacing the old interior liner with a custom-made high quality lining. The engineers had to drill through 16 inches of concrete to accommodate all the new return and suction lines necessary for the level of circulation required for a top quality, modern hydrotherapy pool.
The plumbing had to run through the ceiling of the hospital records storage room, a space measuring 18 inches high and overcome the difficulty of bending pipes around existing ceiling supports.
The old plant was replaced with highly efficient filters and pumps to obtain the proper turnover rate. Glass beads filtration media was used instead of sand as they provide superior filtration and lasts longer.
The rejuvenated facility was re-opened in May 2013.
