Coventry Iconic Pool and Leisure Centre designed with FaulknerBrowns Architects will provide Coventry with an iconic, high quality destination water and leisure facility, that is
accessible to everyone, draws people to Coventry and acts as a catalyst for the regeneration of the city centre.
The centre will provide an exciting ‘high octane’ water park experience with a variety of water rides as well as providing high quality sports, leisure, health and fitness facilities.
Liaising with the design team, including the MEP engineers and the pool operator, a foul and surface water below ground drainage network was designed for the development. The foul system made an allowance for the outfall from the pool backwash filtration system with appropriate applications being made to Severn Trent Water to agree this discharge from the pool along with the discharge from the main building.
To comply with suds policy the surface water runoff from the site was restricted through the use of a flow control device and underground tank storage provided to prevent flooding during an extreme weather event.
Engenuiti produced a Flood Risk Assessment for the site to support the planning application. This document analysed the risk of flooding to the site and the potential impacts the development would have on flood risk for adjacent lands.
