Featured Project: Splash Zone at Butlin's Bognor Regis
In summer 2019, Butlin’s celebrated the opening of its highly-anticipated seaside-inspired swimming pool at its Bognor Regis resort.
The new Splash Zone occupies over 6,500sqm of floor space and has a capacity for almost 1,000 people. The main building is over 14m in height with an even taller Flume Tower which provides access to external water slides.
Inside the new Splash, there is a new modern swimming pool facility, including a series of subdivided pools for children of all ages, slides, flumes, a rapid river ride, as well as changing areas, and a café.
To design and build the venue of this scale requires a lot of input from a design team which included architects and branding teams, water rides and pool specialists, structural and services engineers and a lot of coordination.
