Desco Sheds Light On Innovative Techniques In Swimming Pool Design
This year’s ASA Aquatics Conference in Daventry proved a resounding success for leading mechanical and electrical engineering consultancy, Desco, as it led a thought-provoking seminar for industry insiders, on innovative new energy-saving techniques for the leisure sector.

The event, which was attended by hundreds of delegates from the industry, aimed to inspire and engage aquatics clubs for the future, with a forward-thinking and fresh look at best practice in the sector. As part of the conference, Desco Director David Wright, spoke to architects, contractors and key leisure sector insiders, on the latest state-of-the-art technology and new techniques in MEP design which are paving the way for more efficient and effective leisure facilities across the country.

The focus for the seminar was a case study on Redditch based Abbey Stadium and the utilisation of waste heat from the nearby crematorium, a project and UK-first which Desco played a fundamental role in. David’s talk drew on this example and covered how the special technology installed at Redditch Crematorium is helping to save large quantities of money and significantly reduce energy use, transferring waste heat from crematorium emissions to support the heating of the stadium’s swimming pool. By reducing emissions that previously went straight into the atmosphere, the pool’s new heating system is harnessing waste energy in what has become an innovative, green and efficient project.

Commenting after the event, David Wright said: "I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to speak at the prestigious ASA Conference; this was the first time Desco have led a seminar at the event and it proved to be a real success. My seminar was greeted with some great feedback – it’s wonderful to see this topic providing such an interesting talking point, opening people’s eyes to the many possibilities for the future of swimming pool design.

"The Abbey Stadium project is an example of how thinking outside of the box and making use of the resources available to you, can have huge benefits both financially and to the environment. Shifting your mindset and tackling a project from a fresh and innovative standpoint can lead to a low carbon solution and the best possible outcome for all concerned and this was certainly the case with the Abbey Stadium project.

"Desco is committed to low carbon, energy efficient design across all of the initiatives we work on. We approach every new project in the same way to ensure our client ends up with the most cost effective and energy efficient system available to them. I hope this seminar has helped showcase some of the ways in which this can be done."
