About The Project:

Corby Swimming Pool has been hailed as a regional centre of excellence for swimming, diving and synchronised swimming. It is also host to many National Swimming and Junior Diving events which utilise its 50 metre, 8-lane,   Olympic sized swimming pool.


Specific project features included the latest technology in pool lane timing, hi-tech hydro phonic drown alarm detection and a sophisticated locker system which interfaces with the drown alarm utilising a single wristband that is also used for cashless vending.


The striking design was created by S&P Architects and houses the following:


  • 50m 8-lane Olympic size swimming pool
  • 20m learner pool
  • National junior standard diving boards
  • Fun pool with flume
  • Spectator seating for up to 400 people
  • 70-station fitness suite
  • Sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi
  • Dance studio
  • Crèche
  • Café

Mechanical Scope:

  • Condensing boilers
  • Under floor heating in changing rooms, crèche, health suite, café and spectator seating area
  • VRV comfort cooling and heating system
  • The main pool area is served by a common ventilation system with the main air plants located above the spectator seating area
  • The air handling plant has a heat recovery facility which can transfer heat into the supply air or swimming pool water as conditions require
  • The distribution of the supply to the main pool is via ‘fabric air socks’ which gently dissipates the air into the space

Electrical Scope:

  • High level energy efficient multi scene lighting scheme in the main pool area to enable the use of T.V. cameras for international swimming events
  • Suspended up-light and down-light lighting scheme in the gymnasium
  • Public address system
  • Music systems for different parts of the building - dance studio, ggymnasium and crèche
  • Door access systems
  • Disabled toilet alarm
  • Presence detection and day light dimming of multiple lighting schemes
