Wirksworth swimming pool is a much treasured community facility which is now in need of improvement. The facilities are cramped and access is difficult. There is no space outside the pool for viewing or waiting and this makes it difficult to open up the pool for wider community use.
A brief was drawn up after a public consultation process. An invitation to submit design ideas to extend and improve the pool was then sent to local Architects and we were chosen to help with the project.
The key issues we have addressed are accessibility, wider community use and sustainability.
Our design drawings and sketches are now being used to seek further funds to take the project to the next stage.
