Michael Woods Sports and Leisure Centre starting block

Project details

25m x 17m 8 lane competition swimming pool, 20m x 10m variable depth training pool with full area 0-2m movable floor, 11m x 5m teaching / remedial pool with disabled access.

Project role

Design and specification of the pool water treatment and movable floor; site monitoring of installation and commissioning.

Fife Council invested £21.1 million into the new facility at Michael Woods Sports & Leisure Centre and an additional £1.5M was provided by Sport Scotland’s Sports Facilities Fund. The pools at the leisure centre provide regional training and competition facilities with a spectating gallery for 250 people.

Independent water treatment plants are provided for each of the three pools. This facilitates independent temperature control in each pool.  Circulation within the training pool takes account of the movable floor.

The water treatment system incorporates PAC flocculation, medium rate filtration on sand, photo-oxidation using ultraviolet, heating, pH control and residual disinfectant control using chlorine. VSDs control pump flows linked to an electronic flow meter. Full area movable floor in training pool provides a range of water depths for different training activities.
