ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2017

Project Detail

The Deep End Activity Centre, Rawlins Academy, Quorn

Small Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2017 Finalist

The Deep End Activity Centre is fully accessible and suitable for a variety of activities such as dance, martial arts and table tennis.

A kitchen was installed so the space could be rented out for conferences, bringing valuable extra revenue to the college.

The engineering challenge of the empty swimming pool was tackled by creating holes in its base to allow water to rise in a controlled manner. The pool was filled with different size stones and covered by a new water-resistant concrete slab.

Project Overview

A cracked swimming pool floor that could not be repaired in an eyesore building has led to the creation of a sports and activity hub at Rawlins Academy.

The project saw the conversion of the swimming pool building to provide new spaces that are attractive, flexible and available to the school and the wider community.

By avoiding the demolition of the building, the project has brought it back to life as a multi-use community sport, health and physical activity venue.
