COMMERCIAL SWIMMING POOL OF THE YEAR
The Headland Hotel, Aqua club was firstly award ‘The Commercial Pool Project of the Year’ the judges advised within a very high standard of competition, this project stood out to them for the number of swimming pools in one complex, the technical specification, use of lighting and characteristics.
The Aqua Club was also awarded, ‘Health & Wellness Project of the Year’ with comments from the judges, ‘this project speaks for itself, the quality of design, build and technical specification won it for us’.
Aqua Platinum Projects have designed and built the multi-million-pound project that includes a total of six pools including a 25-metre lap pool, an indoor vitality pool, children’s pool complete with jets, air pads and water mushroom, a traditional sauna with a curved glass front, outdoor vitality pool and sunset spa pool, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Aqua Platinum have worked closely with architects Lilly Lewarne for the past four years, to design and build these world-class facilities for the hotel. It has been an important factor to incorporate the gorgeous Cornish waterfront throughout the design and we have done so by including a ‘wavy’ wall in the lap pool and a beautiful, hybrid, heated edge pool that circles the sunset spa pool that frames the idyllic waterfront. Whilst the outdoor vitality pool is complete with a Cornish granite menhir, this will enable guests to immerse themselves in the beautiful surroundings and relax while taking in the stunning Atlantic views.
The Aqua club is located on land between The Headland Hotel and its cottages. Building of the 2,215 square metre club started in October 2017 and is now open to hotel guests.
The plantroom is over 260 square meters and includes state-of-the-art filtration equipment. The six swimming pools boast the highest specification filtration and water treatment available including pumps and filters from our trusted supplier Waterco and UV water treatment from Triogen.
1000’s of man-hours and continued commitment from the team have resulted in the successful delivery of this project. We would like to thank every single member of the team who helped to deliver this project, all our valued suppliers and JE Stacey who have been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working together on future projects.
RESIDENTIAL INDOOR SWIMMING POOL OF THE YEAR
We were presented with Residential Indoor Project of the Year for our outstanding project Stone House a large-scale refurbishment of the Grade II listed manor house underwent installation of a tailor-made swimming pool and spa area within the basement of the property.
The design saw a unique feature of 8 steel columns passing through the swimming pool. The design and build of an 18m lap pool with steel columns passing through the pool. These columns had to be incorporated into the pool design and finish, adding an exceptionally technically challenging feature rarely seen in swimming pool construction. Alongside this feature there are double-sized steps running the entire length of the pool with strip lighting and a bespoke cantilever tile detail.
The indoor pool hall is complete with a unique designed 8 seated spa, with LED strip lighting and warm jets. The pool hall also includes a detailed ducting design due to the domed ceiling heights and external glazing. The project also included a 19m external infinity edge pool with slatted cover.
