The new swimming pool has a structure of chs roof trusses supported by 254 x 254mm columns lined with blockwork walls. To resist corrosion produced by the harsh internal environment - a pressurised combination of chlorimins and high humidity - the columns are set behind the blockwork inner leaf, both roof and walls are vented on the cold side of the insulation, and internal wall surfaces are sealed with silicone paint or ceramic tiles.
