Earlier this year, we were contracted a close partner of ours, Flowman Leisure Ltd (via Midlothian Council) to refurbish the swimming pool at Loanhead Sports Centre in Midlothian. The existing swimming pool had mosaic tiles, some of which had become damaged or missing through years of use, the grouting was looking tired and the whole place needed a facelift. The refurbishment took some 6 weeks on site and involved stripping all tiles from the pool, concrete testing to ensure the base substrate was undamaged and still fit for purpose, preparation and screeding of the swimming pool base – some walls had to be made square as the existing ones were not! Following on from this preparation process, commencement of the tiling began. Racing lanes had to be put in for competitions and had to be within 2mm of a tolerance for accuracy. The overall look was a very sleek, modern finish with the use of larger format tiles than the more dated mosaic finish that was previously there.
