Each of the main structural beams running the length of the pool were designed, manufactured and delivered as a set of 3 matched-face-cast concrete units before being post-tensioned together. They were cast using a white concrete mix and their seen faces were polished, as were the matching structural columns and perimeter gutter units. This project was the winner of the 1989 Concrete Society Awards for “outstanding merit in the use of concrete”.
