Bespoke Health Spa Designed & Installed in Ability Place, Canary Wharf

In brief

Ability Place is situated in the heart of Canary Wharf, London and is a ‘cutting edge development that emits high quality design and unprecedented build quality’. The owners approached Leisurequip to commission a complete bespoke health spa installation. This included luxury sauna, bespoke tiled steam room and luxury tiled overflow spa. The project was to be a completely new design and custom built from scratch.

Out with the old

Before the new health spa could get underway the old run down, decommissioned domestic swim spa had to be cut out and disposed of. The mezzanine suspended floor had rotted out which gave access to the tanks undercroft.

Luxury tiled overflow spa

In its place we installed a 3m luxury tiled overflow spa which is fully automated with automatic water fill and built in pump protection. Spa chemical Amperometric Chlorine Analyzer and PH control system monitors maintain the ideal chemical water balance.

The tiled overflow spa is set at 37°C and is controlled by a Thermalec 12kw spa electric heater for the prefect bathing temperature. Commercial air blower and jet boaster pump completes the hydro therapy installation.

Bespoke sauna installation

As part of the requirement we designed and installed a hardwood hemlock sauna with  a frameless 10mm glass front. Additionally we added a hidden sauna heater that has auto water and essence dosing.

Bespoke tiled steam room

The health spa design is further complemented with a bespoke tiled steam room also with auto essence dosing. We added twinkling white starry sky lights set in a dark brown tiled raised coffer ceiling along with perimeter amber LED down lighters. Matching seating amber LED strips coordinate the illumination. The two tone dark brown and copper onix vitreous glass mosaics contrasts the walls and benches.

The steam room has unique board radius bench ends, developed by Leisurequip in conjunction with construction board UK manufacturer PCS in Wigan. Leisurequip won the contract through Metric Solutions who provide building maintenance and refit services in London.

Outside the sauna and steam room the matching mosaic tiled front with up-lighter coving completes the design. Jacqui, the Ability Place Estate Manager had been away whilst the residential health spa installation was completed. When the client set eyes upon it they were completely over the moon.
