Bolton One, Bolton

The construction of this £34 million community leisure centre began in 2010, and now provides a first class range of healthy leisure and recreational activities, along with facilities to serve all parts of the community. A joint project between Bolton Council, Bolton University and the NHS means this facility has been built to the highest standard and even includes a moveable swimming pool floor to better accommodate swimming lessons and aqua aerobics. There is also seating for 250 spectators for gala events.

Due to it’s self healing properties Xypex Admix was a requested specification change for waterproofing the suspended first floor hydrotherapy pool shell. Xypex Admix was also used to waterproof the main swimming pool shell and balance tanks, with Xypex Concentrate ensuring water tightness at the joints.

Because Xypex can be post applied it was also used in the form of Patch’n Plug and Megamix I to remedially waterproof overflow channels that had been placed in a mixture of substrates including block work and mortar.
