Aqua Blue Designs are proud to announce that a hydrotherapy clinic we designed, which was opend 18 months ago, has won an award for energy efficiency. We were awarded runner up at the 2014 UK Pool & Spa Awards, presented at the Crowne Plaza, Birmingham, NEC, on Thursday February 20, 2014.

The who’s who in the pool industry gathered together at the recent UK Pool & Spa Awards, to recognise some of the best projects, companies and products that the wet leisure sector has to offer.

The hydrotherapy and physio clinic is now working at full capacity, with a staff of eight, serving disabled people, injured servicemen and women retuning from war zones, some post-operative patients after knee and hip operations and other therapy groups.

Having had over a full year in operation, the facility owners are more than happy with the way the building performs and all the plant within it.

We met the design brief fully and enjoyed a positive relationship with the client and the workforce throughout and we can be confident that the running costs will be much lower than normal for this type of energy hungry installation. Our philosophy is to work closely with our clients in a professional way and to hold together the diverse trades involved.

The winners of the hotly contested competition were presented with their trophies by Olympic bronze medallist and sports personality Stephen Parry. He commented:

The awards are a great way to recognise the outstanding achievements within the pool and spa industry, and to celebrate some of the best projects that have been completed over the past year. Swimming is a big part of my life, and I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to meet the people behind the pools and to be a part of the awards evening.

The UK Pool & Spa Awards is a completely independent event, with no trade association affiliation, which means they are open to everyone involved in the water leisure sector whether as suppliers or as operators.
