Dagenham Swimming Pool Refurbishment

TRAC were appointed Principal Contractor for the refurbishment of Dagenham Swimming Pool by Borough of Barking & Dagenham Council.

The Swimming Pool required an upgrade to its air conditioning system and installation of brighter lighting. In addition, the client took the opportunity to carry out additional repair works and a general “freshening up” of the facility. In order accelerate the programme the majority of the job was carried out under 24 hour working.

Special consideration had to be made for the risks associated with the challenging working conditions of the pool environment which included heat, high humidity and working adjacent to water.

The client didn’t want to drain the pool so debris netting was installed below the work area to minimise the risk of contamination from detritus generated by the works.

Using a combination of scaffold and rope access TRAC’s team undertook the removal and replacement of the original roof panels, the upgrading of the air conditioning ducting, installation of improved lighting and the removal of an 8m high concrete diving board. The pool area was cleaned and repainted, damaged tiles removed and replaced and the bottom of the pool cleaned robotically prior to re-opening.

Works were completed ahead of schedule and to budget.
