The Project

Woodcock Swimming Pool:

Located right in the heart of Aston University’s campus, Woodcock Swimming Pool (now part of The Sir Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre) is Birmingham’s oldest operational swimming pool. Originally opened in 1860 it was Birmingham’s second public baths after the passage of the 1846 Public Baths and Wash-houses Act. In 1902 an additional pool, the First Class Pool, was built.

The Air Handling Unit:

A replacement supply and extract air handling unit serving the swimming pool area. The new unit was designed to maximise sustainability and environmental considerations including energy saving potential and energy efficiencies whilst providing the maximum levels of durability, all within the confines of the current air handling unit footprint.


Project Highlights

Manufactured in 4 sections and craned into a tight rooftop location,, the specialist AHU measured 9m x 3m x 2.5m supplying 6.6m3/s of tempered air in the pool area.

Mansfield Pollard’s design engineers focused on the creation of a high integrity unit with exceptional structure and chemical resilience for maximum durability and unit longevity. A fully weatherproof unit with corrosion resistant casing eternally and internal paneling through use of stainless steel and plastisol, mounted on a hot-dip galvanised steel parallel flange channel base.

Maximum corrosion resistance from gold epoxy plated heat exchanger, specialist C4 coated high efficiency EC fans and powder coated aluminium dampers. All coils were manufactured using bare copper tubes with polyester coated fins and stainless casework.

Inlet and outlet attenuation provided additional sound proofing with a protective melinex lining for maximum chemical and moisture resistance.
