Les Quennevais Swimming Pool re-opens to the public

Les Quennevais Swimming Pool re-opened to the public at 9am on the 1st September 2014, after receiving an essential makeover during the summer months.

The refurbishment and upgrade works comprised redecoration and re-tiling of the pool chamber, replacement of the plant maintenance system and equipment, upgrading and refurbishment of the male and female changing rooms, and introduction of new lockers and cubicles.

Barclay Harvey, Operations Manager to ESC Sport and Leisure Division indicated that prior to the works customer consultation had identified a number of improvements, which were incorporated into the plan. 

"During the consultation process comments were received from members of the public who use the Sports Centre on a regular basis.  These comments were fed back to the architect and adjustments to the programme of works were made.  Customers will benefit from improved facilities at the Centre," he said.

Mr Harvey added that the introduction of a new Building Management system (BMS) will enable management to remotely control climate and energy use within the entire building in an efficient way. "The management team will be able to alter the plant room and boilers, water temperature, water and air circulation, and switch the operating plant on and off from a desktop computer or an IPad. The work is on schedule and being carried out within budget.

"The Sports and Leisure Division would like to thank Active members and regular customers for their patience and apologise for the inconvenience caused during the close down period."

The areas upgraded during the refurbishment encompass:

  1. Better changing rooms incorporating bigger showers with screens
  2. Bigger lockers (coin operated with £1 returnable coin)
  3. Improved vanity areas including better hairdryers (free use)
  4. Upgraded changing and toilet cubicles
  5. Better hot water pressure and supply
  6. Improved energy efficient poolside LED lighting
  7. New poolside Scoreboard and Public Address system
  8. Steam/Aroma therapy room upgrade
  9. Upgraded Jacuzzi facilities
  10. Additional deep cleaning of pool
  11. New filter media in the balance tank, which provides better water quality through the use less chemicals.

 
Jersey Amateur Swimming Association (JASA) President, Paul du Feu, works closely with the Sport and Leisure Division to ensure galas and club use are coordinated.  Commenting on the refurbishment, Mr du Feu said:

"The reopening of the newly refurbished pool will be welcomed by all its users. Though frustrating for many to have the facility closed for an extended period the end result should please everyone and ESC are to be congratulated on doing such a wide ranging and diverse set of works in such a short time. A pool needs a huge amount of work behind the scenes and this is generally not understood or forgotten by most swimmers.  We can now all look forward to enjoying a sparkling, clean and fully re- furbished facility. I hope it's fully used by a wide range of the community."
