Opened in 2013, the centre includes an 8 lane 25m competition pool, a teaching/learner pool, spectator seating, mobile floors for both pools and disabled lift with full access to the main pool. It also provides fitness and health suites, studios and associated changing rooms.
The exterior façade is clad in 1400 individual glass panels that were developed in conjunction with local artist Phil Coy.
In February 2014 The Glass Mill was awarded the Best Built Project – Community Scale Scheme in the London Planning Awards 2013/14. It was also listed as one of the four best buildings completed in London in 2013/2014.
ToughGlaze worked closely with Phil Coy to ensure that the production quality, project management and delivery enabled him to realise his vision. We manufactured over 20 different colour panels, made up of 4mm and 6mm glass with Vanceva interlayer's, which allow a configuration of 9 different coloured interlayers to be used to create the whole spectrum of colours. We also provided 21.5mm toughened laminate glass with drilled holes to create the entrance canopy.
