Project Description

As part of the newly completed multi-million dollar St John of God Midland Health Campus, we were engaged by principal contractor Brookfield Multiplex to construct the hydrotherapy pool. Delivered on time and on budget, this highly specified pool required extensive planning and management to ensure the fully tiled 4m x 8m pool met not only the health and safety regulations, but also mirrored the high quality finishes that are seen throughout the hospital.

Designed for rehabilitation and water based therapy, the hydrotherapy pool uses a heat exchange system ensuring constant water temperature for patients. A Prominent water treatment system complete with UV sanitation is part of the extensive equipment used in the construction which also includes an Atlas Stainless steel pre-coat filter. A wet deck with an extensive balance tank was designed and installed, allowing the waterline to be at concourse level and consistent with the pool surrounds.

The pool has been designed for people with restricted mobility in mind. The depth ranging from 1.2m to 1.5m means that patients are able to walk through the pool with varied resistance whilst extensive stainless steel handrails to all pool walls and step entry allows for independent access. An AKRAS hoist system was installed to permit access for patients with impaired mobility.
