Barker Associates made a successful application to the ESFA’s Condition Improvement Fund in 2017 to carry out extensive refurbishment works to this well-used facility. The work comprised of replacement of the pool liner, tiled deck, refurbishment of changing areas and complete renewal of the heating and ventilation systems.
As Project Managers, Barker Associates worked with Mechanical & Engineering Consultants Time DCL and contractors Hellabys and CPLS on the project. The refurbishment was undertaken and completed during the summer break minimising disruptions to the school.
The school now benefits from a considerable reduction in energy consumption, controllable pool and air conditions and a refreshed environment in which to change. The pool continues to be used as a valuable resource for Simon Balle students and the local community to explore, learn and develop.
This is the second project we have successfully undertaken with Barker Associates and we are very happy with the support received from Robert, Philippa and the team. Barker Associates were pivotal in creating the CIF bid and they ensured we made the most efficient use of the funding available. Without this project, we may not have had a pool at all.
