Thank you to Don MacKenzie, who has been involved
with the recent refurbishment of Glenogle Pool, for writing:
"Just noting to you that the Glenogle pool and fitness facilities are now
fully refurbished and restored to, we like to think, even better than
their former splendour!
We have sought to preserve the authenticity of the fine, late Victorian
style / turn-of-the-century structure and features, whilst bringing the
facilities up to a modern, leisure club standard of environment, to
meet rising customer expectations.
"The pool now also benefits from:
a refitted, fully equipped
new sauna and steam room set
in a newly created relaxation area.
is now full accessibility for the disabled, all but impossible before."
building now has two concealed, large solar panel arrays to heat the pool
water nearly all year round, even producing useful heat on overcast days.
is also a new, very efficient modern boiler plant and a 'combined heat and
power unit', providing further heating and on-site electricity generation,
capable of supplying most of the building's electricity, at close to 100%
efficiency in fuel use."
