The recent project undertaken by Flexflooring to refurbish two paddling pools at Guildford Lido has been covered by Building for Leisure. You can see the coverage by clicking here and then going to pages 38/39 of the May/June 2011 digital edition.
The Lido owned by Guildford Borough Council and operated by Spectrum, is set in four and a half acres of landscaped gardens and includes a 50 x 27 metre Olympic sized heated swimming pool, plus two children’s paddling pools, each one an impressive 33 metres long and 3.6 metres wide.
Rob Price, the Marketing Manager of Guildford Spectrum Leisure Complex highlighted the impact of the changes, “Guildford Lido is one of the original 1930’s Lidos built in the UK and still retains its period charm today. The 50m heated outdoor pool attracts over 50,000 people during the season and a significant percentage of users are families with young children. The Flexflooring brief was to enhance the children’s paddling pools ensuring customer safety and comfort for the seasons to come whilst being sympathetic to the architecture of the pool surrounds. Flexflooring delivered their promise and although given tight deadlines, including bank holiday working, the works were completed on time and to a high quality specification. The feedback to date from staff and customers has been extremely positive.”
