Kensington Pool

Kensington below ground

This pool and spa complex is on the third level below ground in a seven storey property in Kensington, London. The underground leisure area is part of the latest build mews house construction in the heart of London. The considerable engineering works included a 25 metre deep excavation to accommodate the multi-million pound development.

A number of companies were involved to complete the ‘tardis like’ dwelling and London Swimming Pool Company were appointed the specialist pool contractor based on their expertise for installing sub ground level pools within listed buildings.

The swimming pool measures 12×4 metres and features a moving floor which is elevated through the water to be set at different depths as required.

A Heatstar Phoenix XF 3000 Super+ was chosen for the project offering dehumidification via fresh air ventilation, air heating, pool water heating and active heat recovery to the air.

The exacting design and specification of the pool and spa took around a year and a half and the subsequent construction lasted approximately two years.

London Swimming Pool Company say the client was ‘very pleased’ with the luxurious and practical combined leisure and entertainment area in the property where space is at a premium.

The Yeatman

Underlining the excellence of the hotel and its facilities, the infinity pool at The Yeatman was voted one of the ‘Top 12 Infinity Pools in the World’ and number one in Portugal by leading travel trade magazine Conde Naste’s “Traveller”.

Opened in the mid 1990′s by the Yeatman family, the landmark luxury hotel is in a stunning location overlooking the historic centre of Oporto and the River Douro, a five star wine and spa hotel with a Michelin star restaurant, one of the finest wine cellars in Europe, an indoor pool, an infinity pool and a luxury spa.

Heatstar environmental control units were chosen for both the hotel pool and its luxury spa. Many features have been incorporated into the design and operation of The Yeatman Hotel to help save energy and reduce its impact on the environment. Heatstar is internationally renowned for its product’s energy efficiency and energy savings advantages and these were major criteria for the hotel in choosing Heatstar.

Two Phoenix 6000 Super units were installed by the hotel – one for the pool and one for the luxury spa. The two Phoenix units have a combined airflow of 12,000 M3/Hr and a combined dehumidification duty of 29.5 L/Hr.

The units also incorporate fresh air ventilation for dehumidification and cooling, heat recovery to both air and water and variable mode humidity control which provides The Yeatman Hotel with a fully automated system which ensures that the environment is kept at the exact requirements.

Heatstar units were perfect for this location due to Heatstar’s modular construction and its ability to tailor make units to client’s specific configuration needs.

The company Heatstar dealt with on this project in Portugal have worked with Heatstar for around 10 years and their commercial manager Joaquim Lourenço said:

“Heatstar always offer excellent technical support both during and after installation. The knowledge and experience of Heatstar engineers is second to none and their response times to any questions we have are faster than any other company. We also know their products are always at the cutting edge of energy efficiency and quality of construction.”

Cumbrian Barn

Pool Beauty Is Not Skin Deep
Proving that beauty is not just skin-deep, the environmental control for an outstanding Cumbrian Barn conversion project, by multi-award winning Portrait Pools, was entrusted to the care of a Phoenix XF 3000 Super+ environmental control unit from Heatstar.

The client tasked the Portrait team with maximising the use of space and layout with the barn to create a modern contemporary style pool yet still retain some of the original character.

In addition, any ductwork required for the heating and ventilation had to be hidden from view and Portrait’s design had to accommodate the fact that the barn had very little natural light.

Portrait rose to the challenge and met all the criteria. The pitched roof with exposed honey coloured beams showed the buildings origins and original character whilst the rest of the space was given a clean, contemporary look.

The remaining roof space was used to carefully conceal the ducting. To compensate for the lack of natural light the walls and floor were finished in large format, light reflecting, contemporary titles in a warm neural colour with attractive feature lighting.

The internal space was maximised to the full with an 11 metre by 5 metre pool with integrated spa. Honey coloured wood doors and window frames completed the look.

Heatstar have been Portrait’s preferred supplier for 20 years. It has been a remarkable two decades for both companies with Portrait Pools being named UK Pool Contractor of the Year for the second time this year. Heatstar meanwhile have also gone from strength to strength building on their enviable reputation for product innovation, energy saving design, quality of manufacture and the best after sales service in the business.

In fact one of the benefits of Heatstar often praised by Portrait is that they have their own dedicated in-house team of fully trained service engineers using only Heatstar quality spares and equipment.

Rottingdean Place

Estate Cuts Energy Bills By 70%

The recent installation of a Heatstar Gemini 3000 Super+ at the prestigious Rottingdean Place
luxury residential estate in East Sussex has demonstrated year-on-year energy use reduction of 70% over the former system and has reduced gas consumption by 83%.

Rottingdean Place, which lies actually within the South Downs National Park and was formerly an historical home for penitents run by nuns, appointed specialist Sussex swimming pool contractor Pool-Tec to execute the installation of the Gemini.

With a focus to improve energy efficiency in their existing indoor pool complex, which has previously been identified as a major user of energy and had been monitored closely for an extended period, Rottingdean Place considered several alternative option.

However they were particularly attracted to the features and benefits of the Heatstar Gemini 3000 Super+, with its built-in fresh air source heat pump, its dehumidification heat pump and EC low carbon ventilatin fans which automatically ramp down to save power during periods of low demand.

The client can watch the rotation of the special EC fan though an illuminated viewing window on the side of the Gemini unit.

The ‘one-box’ Gemini was able to be located within the existing plant room and simply connected to the existing air distribution duct channels from the former system.

Heatstar supported Pool-Tec, who can boast 30 years active swimming pool experience, by attending site at the outset of the enquiry to make an initial assessment and also by visiting again after the contract was awarded to ensure the tailor-made configuration of the Gemini was optimised for the available plant room space.

Chelsea Underground Pool

Subterranean Leisure
This underground leisure area is part of a new prestige residential development in Chelsea, Central London by HAB Group and reflects the outstanding and uncompromising luxury with style required for high end property purchasers.

London Swimming Pool Co designers worked closely with the architects. The extremely limited space required that a great deal of complex equipment, pipe work and air ducting had to be concealed elsewhere. All operational systems were therefore placed partly within a plant room at deck walkway level and partly within an undercroft running beneath the complete length of the deck area and next to the pool.

The complexity of the project and its underground location demanded a pool environmental control system that was technologically advanced yet could include elements of bespoke manufacturing to fit the space available. As with many of its prestigious pool installations the London Swimming Pool Company specified Heatstar’s Phoenix 2000 Super+ for this luxury pool’s environmental control system.

Ideal for all large residential and commercial indoor swimming pools, the key features of the Phoenix are summed up as dehumidification via fresh air, air conditioning and excellent poolroom air quality.

Lakeside Hotel & Spa

Eco Theme Ends With Four Star Treatment From Heatstar

The desire to embrace all available ecological and green technologies was at the heart of the pool and spa ambitions at the prestigious 4 star Lakeside Hotel and Spa.

When you build a luxury pool and spa it is vital to ensure that the leisure environment and its heating, cooling and humidity levels are precision controlled to 4 star standards. Developers of the Lakeside Hotel and Spa on the Isle of Wight turned to Heatstar, who design and manufacture swimming pool environmental control systems.

The Lakeside Hotel and Spa is on the edge of a 20acre tidal lake amongst 17 acres of countryside designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is close to protected wildlife habitats.

The hotel and spa designers wanted all things green to be the theme. The Heatstar unit was the natural choice in keeping with the whole project’s low emissions policy. The unit selected was a special Phoenix 3000 Super+ system featuring the latest dehumidification heat pump technology and reduced energy active fan technology.

Heatstar’s involvement with quality projects like the Lakeside Hotel often comes about through recommendations or previous experiences. The developer who brought the project to fruition, Godshill Park Developments, had previous experience of using Heatstar products so had no hesitiation in specifying them.

Martin Sheaff the Facilities Manager at the Lakeside Hotel commented: “This was a quality new build to the exacting new Building Standards regulations so we needed a high spec, quality unit that was as reliable as possible in use – and that is exactly how it has turned out. The Heatstar Phoenix unit has been in use for about four years now and we have had no problems at all.”

The Phoenix provides dehumidification, air heating, pool water heating, active heat recovery to both air and pool water and fresh air ventilation. It is designed to provide a modulated level of fresh air dilution to achieve an enhanced impression of freshness and to prevent and build-up of chemical odours.
