The revitalised Jelly Park swimming pool complex in Christchurch, built by Mainzeal for the Christchurch City Council, opened to the public this month and was an immediate success. This state of the art facility has incorporated Renhurst's Rippletone perforated aluminium ceilings providing a high noise reduction co-efficient (NRC) of 0.80.
Warren and Mahoney Architecture, chose the proven life span offered by Renhurst ceiling's 20 year track record in swimming pool environments. The architects use of the Renhurst ceiling to create a series of curves results in the ceiling having a gentle wave motion which sets the facility apart from the ordinary enclosed pools.
Christchurch City Councils', Western Area Recreation Manager, Simon Battrick is particularly pleased with the excellent light reflectance provided by the ceiling the new pool areas saying " the space has a very clean, bright and welcoming feel ".
In addition to the Renhurst ceiling Forman Building Systems also supplied Foamglas(R) cellular glass insulation to the mechanical services piping.
