Fibo wall panels in Sugar Sparkle were chosen to transform the men’s showers at Mountbatten Leisure Centre in Portsmouth – the latest in a series of renovations at the city’s premier sports facility.
Owned by Portsmouth City Council and operated by social enterprise BH Live, the Mountbatten Centre has undergone a major redevelopment in recent years, comprising new Olympic and teaching pools, fitness suite and revamped changing areas, as well as updates to the outdoor cycle and athletics tracks.
The centre has hosted British Cycling events and is home to many local sports clubs, including the internationally renowned Northsea Swimming Club, which has produced Olympic and Paralympic swimmers.
Keith Brocks, Building Surveyor for Portsmouth City Council, commented: “The Mountbatten Centre has seen a tremendous amount of investment in recent years and Fibo’s wall panels were ideal for this project as they look fantastic, are high quality and great value for money.
“They’re also simple and quick to install. Speed was essential on this project, as we had to get the facilities open as soon as possible for use by the public and for club training sessions.
“The support from Fibo was excellent and very hands-on, ensuring that everything went smoothly.
“The 15-year guarantee gave me confidence in the durability of the panels. There’s no grouting to attract dirt and mould so they’re very low maintenance, which was a key factor in the specification.”
