Quattro were asked to redevelop Ross Swimming Pool with a brief to: drastically alter the image of a tired swimming pool building, improve accessibility to all facilities for all abilities, improve the energy efficiency of the building fabric, reduce running & life-cycle costs and provide increased revenue opportunities to ensure the long term future of a sustainable centre.

The new extension intelligently wraps around the front of the pool hall, giving coherence to the new main entrance and high quality facilities within.

At the heart of the development is a new “village change” opening directly to the pool hall creating a welcoming and secure changing environment.
