Chelmsford Riverside Leisure Centre – AngelEye Installation

The Project

The Chelmsford Riverside Leisure Centre is a new state-of-the-art addition to Chelmsford, Essex. The complex boasts two swimming facilities, a health club with a 130-station gym floor and group exercise studios, an Ofsted-registered creche and even an ice rink.

The centrepiece of the site is the ten-lane, 25-metre swimming pool with high-tech adjustable barriers. The pool features an adjustable floor (boom) – being one of the only three in the UK with its dimensions. The glazing around the pool creates an airy atmosphere but does create glare from the water around the day.

SPSC UK was tasked with future-proofing the pool and creating vital safety infrastructure to achieve 360 ° monitoring of the swimmers.

Scope: Chelmsford Riverside is a new state-of-the-art leisure centre in Essex, UK. SPSC UK equipped the 25 x 25 swimming pool with AngelEye Drowning Detection System.

Location: Chelmsford, Essex, UK

Architect: Pick Everard

Our Solution

SPSC worked closely with the architects of the Riverside Leisure Centre and designed the layout of the new safety system. 16 AngelEye underwater cameras were seamlessly integrated within the pool, providing full coverage of the adjustable floor.

The delivered Drowning Detection System worked seamlessly with other pool systems and not despite them. Once the installation was completed SPSC carried out a full risk assessment and provided training to the pool management team ensuring smooth adoption of the system.

SPSC are proud to be able to support and assist the safe use of such a prestigious venue, whilst the clients stated a Drowning Detection System was a must, we are delighted we could provide such a comprehensive service, whilst adhering to the elegant vision of The Shard; providing safety for swimmers and much needed mobility for members of staff.
