Cedar Park School near High Wycombe had an outdoor swimming pool area which was upgraded in the autumn of 2010 to create a new indoor facility for the children.  The project involved building a new polycarbonate roof over the outdoor pool to enclose it. 


The original pool surround area had been laid in concrete, but because this was slightly uneven it created lots of puddles. The Headteacher, Alastair Phillips was concerned that the new enclosure would suffer from condensation and realised that the new floor would have to be self draining.  Safety underfoot for the children was the most important consideration, but ease of maintenance and good looks were also important considerations.


After inspecting the area, Tact agreed drainage could be improved by cutting slots in the concrete to allow the water to flow away from the poolsides.  Once this work was completed, free draining Pedestrian TactTiles in Light and Dark Blue were laid around the pool area creating a hygienic new floor surface.


Mr Phillips said, "We are delighted with the flooring that TactTiles have installed around our new school swimming pool.  The enclosure is bright and colourful.  Pool users have commented very positively on the environment and the floor is comfortable under-foot and safe to walk on.  Our pool carer has been pleased with the ease of maintenance and hard-wearing nature of the floor surface.  Thank you for completing the job in such a professional manner.  I would have no hesitation in recommending TactTiles to anyone looking for a high-quality swimming pool flooring".
