Spen Valley Leisure Centre – Build Update 28 April 2021

As promised in the last blog, today we bring to you the progress of tiling in the main pool. Tiling has been completed on the floor of the pool. The 25-metre pool has eight lanes with a shallow end at 0.9m and the deep end at 1.8m. It has taken roughly twice as long to grout the tiles as it did to lay them. Very detailed work!

Pools need a whole lot of equipment to make them work properly. The pool’s filters and pumps have been brought to site over the last few weeks and are now starting to be put in place.

Finally, a quick look outside to see the progress being made on the car park. As you can see, kerb lines are going in and some tarmac is down, with more to come in the next week or so. A welcome relief from the mud created by the awful weather over the winter.

That’s all for now but look out for the next update on progress at Spen Valley Leisure Centre, coming soon.
