HART LEISURE CENTRE

A brand new multi-million pound leisure centre in Fleet, Hampshire. The building has been designed with two distinct sides and a central hub. It includes a ‘wet’ side with two 25m swimming pools, together with a 20m teaching pool and changing area.

The state of the art facilities are part of an investment in well-being by the local council. Moreover, the location of the building adjacent to a country park, affords visitors access to a landscape of trees and shrubs as part of the natural habitat.

 

THE WATERPROOFING CHALLENGE

Hart Leisure Centre required an effective single standalone waterproofing solution across all wet facilities. These comprise of an 8-lane and a 4-lane 25m swimming pool, as well as a 20m 4-lane trainer pool.

 

THE XYPEX SOLUTION

Xypex was specified as the sole waterproofing solution for the three swimming pools, together with the areas surrounding the pools. Altogether, approximately 600m³ of waterproof concrete was required across the project.

Xypex Admix C Series – 3 x swimming pools (8-lane 25m, 4-lane 25m, 4-lane 20m) and surrounding areas

Xypex Concentrate – All joints

Hydroswell Bentostrip – All joints

 

THE RESULTS

After the pools had been pressure tested, the final finishes were applied to the pool’s surfaces. This allowed the rest of the construction to be completed within the timescales required, ultimately helping to ensure completion on schedule. The complex opened in the spring of 2017.
