This NEC3 design and build project included the provision of a new swimming pool and landscape works for Freemen’s School in Ashtead in Kent.

The works comprised demolition of the existing fire-damaged building, new build construction and extensive mechanical and electrical works.

The project provides a 25m, six lane competition pool, changing facilities and a multifunctional teaching and events space. The construction of the pool included a glue-laminated timber (glulam) portal frame, braced with cross laminated timber (CLT) panels

Gilbert-Ash developed a systemic approach to working with large scale timber structures. Careful coordination was required, with extensive off-site manufacturing and assembling.
