Seven Springs, Block Refurbishment

The Reception Block and Hydrotherapy Pool at Seven Springs Care Home were tired and dated and the once popular pool had been forced to close to residents and public alike. MacConvilles were tasked with refurbishing and modernizing the 1970s facility and making it the focal point of the Service once again.

Well over a year after the initial planning stage, MacConvilles were proud to see the transformation completed.  The newly refurbished pool, with its re-shaped design, contemporary liner and edge tiling, poolside changing cubicles, non-slip resin floor, and barrelled stretch ceiling, created a real wow factor and exceeded client expectations.  The modern colour-change LED lighting and Bluetooth sound system further enhanced the uplifted environment.

MacConvilles combined their full range of skills and services to make the project come to life.  From initial CAD Drawings and layout design to statutory consents, coordinating other consultants, procurement of the works, and management on site, the project was both challenging and rewarding in equal measure. .

The new Physio Room was doubled in size with new H-frame hoist arrangement for transferring residents from their wheelchairs to the equipment.  The Changing Room for residents was refurbished to match the poolside finishes, accessible and ambulant WCs were given a new lease of life, and offices were redecorated and re-carpetted to complete the internal overhaul.  Doors were replaced throughout with new encapsulated doorsets in resident areas to withstand the rigours of wheelchair use.

Externally, the barrelled pool roof and main flat roof were stripped and replaced with a new warm flat roof, windows were replaced with new uPVC, a new air handling unit was installed, and entrance ramps re-surfaced.
