Fluidra to design and build three pools for new Virgin Active center in BangkokOctober 10, 2018
Fluidra plans to complete the pools this year
This makes five projects for Virgin Active in Asia -four in Bangkok and one in Singapore- for a total value of more than €2.4 million
Fluidra, the multinational, Spanish-listed company focused on developing innovative products, services and IoT solutions for the residential and commercial pool markets globally, is partnering for the fifth time with Virgin Active, the leisure and sports chain, to design and build the pools for its fitness centres in Asia. The latest is located at the exclusive Bangkok-based Whizdom 101 mall and residential complex, located in one of the most up-and-coming areas of the Thai capital.
The project, led by the Fluidra Thailand subsidiary, includes the design and construction of three pools: a competition pool measuring 227 m2, a 69 m2 hydrotherapy pool, and a 155 m2 children’s pool. With these facilities, the Virgin Active fitness center at Whizdom 101, a smart city inside Bangkok, will have a comprehensive state-of-the-art aquatic area that will ensure maximum wellbeing for gym members. Fluidra plans to complete the entire project between late October and early November.
Fluidra‘s collaboration with Virgin Active in Asia now comes to a total of five projects since 2015, worth more than €2.4 million. In addition to Whizdom 101, Fluidra has been responsible for the pools at a further three Virgin Active fitness centers in Bangkok, at EmQuartier, Siam Discovery Center, and Central Festival Eastville. It also provided the water sports facilities at the recently opened Virgin Active Marina One, located in a skyscraper in Singapore’s financial district.
The Virgin Active projects in Thailand and Singapore confirm Fluidra’s important presence in Asia, where it is also the supplier for numerous aquatic competitions. The company was responsible for the installation of four pools for the water sport competitions at the recent 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia. Fluidra is also building a pool at the Aceh Aquatic Center in Indonesia, site of the 13th PORA Games to take place in September 2019. Fluidra furthermore designed and built six pools for the 19th Sukma Games in Malaysia, held in mid-September.
