Gibraltar Floating Bathing Pavilion
OpeMed have been invited to work with a large construction team in Gibraltar as part of a ¬£4.4m investment in a euro floating bathing pavilion by the government.
Marinetek, the Finnish company responsible for the regeneration of Westview park and current GASA swimming pool have an existing wide portfolio of projects including over 2,000 marina references such as “The Palm” in Dubai and have presence in over 35 countries worldwide.
The contract with the government is aiming to “create new jobs” and “boost public access to the shoreline” as well as reinforcing the importance of a healthy lifestyle. These objectives will be met by the recreational plans for what has been named “The Gigantic Floating Bathing Pavillion” consisting of: 4 swimming pools, play parks, exercise parks and a climbing wall.
OpeMed’s part in this regeneration is notable for disabled members of the public in particular. Our remit falls within the complementary water front as an accessible disabled friendly toilet and changing area for the public.
These essential hoisting and lifting aids will provide the opportunity for disabled users and carers to make the most of their day out at the floating pavilion without being restricted by needing to change at home or not having enough space. The OT200 Ceiling Hoist is always recharging, offering users 24/7 hoisting with no downtime, our Ceiling Hoist is easy maintain and cost effective; ideal for public changing areas.
We look forward to to completing the project with Marinetek and look forward to hearing positive reports back from the residents and visitors of Westview Park, Gibraltar!
