The Kalwall translucent daylighting system has been used in the multi-million pound transformation and creation of Immingham’s new swimming pool.

The £1.45 million facility was designed by ENGIE, the Architectural Consultancy for North East Lincolnshire Council, with support from Sport England.

The Kalwall translucent daylighting system – distributed throughout the UK by Structura – was specified to bring the design to life.

Kalwall cladding was used for all the walls in the new fitness suite and exercise studio; several years prior to the build, the same cladding was used for the Oasis Academy, which sits adjacent to the swimming pool. The system unites the two sites, creating a sense of uniformity. When illuminated at night, the external elevations present a striking aesthetic across the two builds.

Internally, Kalwall works to diffuse natural daylight into the rooms, creating a stimulating exercising environment. The system has been designed to eliminate shadows, glare and contrasts of light and shade, whilst reducing the need for artificial lighting.

However, whilst being translucent, it also offers privacy: the need for blinds or curtains is eradicated.
