Salus Approved Inspectors were proud to be appointed by Liverpool City Council for the new Picton Pool Leisure Centre in Wavertree. Now known as the Liverpool Aquatics Centre, it is a state of the art facility comprising one of the few Olympic sized pools in the UK. The main 8 lane, 50m pool is suitable for national competitions and has a movable floor allowing both depth and slope variations. It is complemented by a separate 4 lane, 20m pool for public and training use. Adjoining it the existing sports centre also underwent major refurbishment to provide a new gym and fitness centre.
Handled by our Wirral office, Salus were appointed early in the project’s design. Following initial meetings with the architect we prepared a detailed report on key areas of Building Regulation compliance including fire strategy which helped to smooth the approval process when formal consultation with the fire authority was carried out.
