Swimming Pool Fabric Roof Replacement

As part of their gym refurbishment, David Lloyd approached us to replace the fabric roof to their members pool in the Reading club. Utilising our expert fabric team, we carried out the safe dismantle and removal of the old membranes and associated components.

Our Solution

We then carried out a 3D survey of the structure to enable a re-design incorporating improvements to the replacement components.

Once the new bespoke fabric design was agreed we set about manufacturing and installing both the new inner and outer fabric roof membranes, all within a 2-week timeframe to ensure that the roof was re-installed as quickly as possible, and the pool closure time was minimal.

We also carried out cleaning works to the structural steelwork to give the whole pool area a fresh look for the refurbishment project.
