Picton Swimming Pool

After seven years on the drawing board and two years in construction, this brand new swimming pool and leisure complex opened recently with several PAS supplied and installed audio systems. PAS Sound were appointed by engineering consultants to design the public address systems for the 50m pool and the various areas of the leisure centre.

A multi-zone Public Address was designed and installed to enable all areas in the building to operate independantly with speech and music, yet when required, be contactable from the main reception. Designed to host swimming galas the venue has had careful loudspeaker installation and setup during commissioning to ensure the maximum speech quality and intelligibility throughout the seating areas.

Induction loop systems were installed in pool viewing areas, meeting rooms and at reception. Additionally speech transfer systems were installed at the reception windows to assist staff and customers communicating. TV and DAB antenna distribution systems were also installed for the benefit of fitness centre users in the leisure centre.

On time and budget: With a constantly changing deadline the installation and commissioning of the scheme was carried out on budget and by the final completion date by PAS to the total satisfaction of the client and the contractors. Leisure centre staff were pleased with the systems which they found to be simple to operate, yet comprehensive enough to meet all their operational requirements.

Since being used in swimming galas, regional swimming association officals have commented that the system in the pool is one of the best they have come across in the many centres they visit during the events they organise.
