The Streamline Swim Academy arose from the local demand for swimming lessons and a greater challenge for more advanced swimmers. The needs of consumers were forefront in the minds of both owners and architects along with the desire to make the building practical and energy efficient. HWHP (Hot Water Heat Pumps Ltd) was asked to participate in the project after recommendations from Pool Builder Aaron Hinton and thorough research and comparisons with alternative options by Architect William Giesen.
HWHPs was engaged to design, build and install a complete Indoor pool heating and ventilation system based on Duoheat Vent-Air technology heating the main pool and toddler pool, air heating for the main pool hall, under floor heating and heated air for changing rooms and hot water for the showers and amenities.
Technical difficulties that Hot Water Heat Pumps Ltd were faced with on this project was the tight space for housing the mechanical and Vent-Air equipment. We overcame these difficulties by utilising multiple smaller Duoheat heat pumps rather than one or two large units. The use of four heat pump water heaters also allowed for greater control over multiple heating requirements; two different pool temperatures, air heating and condensation control in two different spaces, underfloor heating and domestic hot water.
The cooperation and collaboration between those involved in the project has created facilities that provide a wonderful environment for swimmers and supporters alike.
