Galvanizing company helps new rehab centre
Edward Howell Galvanizers
Edward Howell Galvanizers provided specialist hot dip galvanizing treatment to structural steelwork used to build a new GBP8 million Sports Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation Centre.
The 24 tonnes of structural steelwork was used by Brierley Hill-based fabrication firm Midland Erection to carry out initial construction work on the new hub, which forms part of the college's ambitious plans to become a national centre for excellence in sport and sports injury rehabilitation.
The centrepiece of the new centre, which is expected to be fully operational by the end of the month, is a 25 metre swimming pool incorporating a moveable floor, enabling the depth to be adjusted to offer a variety of hydrotherapy treatments.
In addition, the centre will also house a number of lecture theatres and treatment clinics, including dedicated facilities for hydrotherapy and cryotherapy, along with a biomechanics lab, and changing rooms for students using the nearby sports pitches.
'When completed, this centre really will put the college at the forefront of treating sports injuries,' Jim Lindsay, Commercial Manager of Edward Howell Galvanizers, said.
'I'm sure it will be a huge benefit not just for the students, but the wider community too, as local residents will be able to use a number of the facilities on offer'.
Chris Poole, Managing Director of Midland Erection , revealed: 'The team at Edward Howell carried out a reliable and extremely professional job for us on this important project.
Having the steelwork galvanized will ensure it remains free from rust and corrosion for years to come'.
Edward Howell Galvanizers is part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, the largest hot dip galvanizing organisation in the UK with a history dating back over 150 years.
With 14 plants strategically placed across the country, they offer a truly national galvanizing service.
