Wiltshire’s Olympiad Swimming Pool Lighting Upgrade

The Olympiad Leisure Centre in Chippenham is one of the largest leisure and activity centres in Wiltshire, offering first class health, sport and swimming facilities.

SMARTech electrical services were brought on board to refurbish 15 of the existing induction lights and ballasts within the swimming pool area – along with the installation of 5 LED wall lights.

Illuminating a swimming pool has particular challenges for lighting specialists and none more so than leisure pools such as The Olympiad Leisure.

The complex consists of a 25m long swimming pool with islands to the sides.  The uneven surface, together with the shape of the pool required 2 x 7m fibreglass scaffold towers to be placed in the water so that the SMARTech electrical services team could carry out the lighting maintenance.

The project took two nights to complete and in order to ensure that the swimming pool remained operational throughout, the SMARTech electrical services team had to build the scaffold towers each night when the centre was closed – prior to carrying out the work.

SMARTech electrical Services Contracts Manager, Jamie Dennison said “The complexity of the swimming pool area was a challenge, but the lighting refurbishment was implemented very well. We had a good strong team working on this project and together with the Olympiad Leisure Centre, we are delighted with the results”.
