New Supplementary Heating System and other improvements

In mid-February 2018, the DKHAC installed new gas boilers and various other plant room improvements to supplement the existing heating systems, by providing an instantaneous and potentially infinite supply of heating energy for the pools, space and domestic hot water system. This has resulted in increased energy efficiency and the best use of the multiple energy sources available. The equipment installation required the DKHAC to be shutdown for a 33 hour period with the implementation works a complete success. The shutdown period also allowed the DKHAC to implement a number of improvements throughout the facility. These improvements were as follows:

  • Public and private changeroom redecoration and refit

  • New and improved signage throughout the building

  • Replacement floor to gym and program room

  • Centre wide painting maintenance
