AECOM and Wilkinson Eyre win swimming-pool design competition

This new swimming- pool complex for Worthing Borough Council will be delivered by AECOM and Wilkinson Eyre Architecs

Engineering consultancy AECOM has teamed up with Wilkinson Eyre Architects to win the design competition organised by RIBA to design a new landmark swimming pool in Worthing. The new pool complex will form part of Worthing Borough Council’s new landmark swimming-pool complex in Worthing.

It will include an 8-lane 25 m pool, combined learner/diving pool, indoor leisure pools with rapids and flumes, health-and-fitness centre, cafe, creche and flexible space for other activities.

The proposed building will incorporate advanced technologies for construction, energy management and recycling.

For example, passive shielding will reduce dependency on mechanical systems, and the facade design will be optimised to maximise daylight and passive thermal benefit in winter. It will also incorporate solar photo-voltaic arrays.

Heating and cooling requirements will be met by ground-source heat pumps and a CHP generator.

Another feature will be ‘Thermobeams’, structural cellular precast beams, to support the roof and accommodate wind scoops to boost the ventilation strategy
