Level monitoring protects natural spring waters during £50m hotel renovation.
The redevelopment of an architecturally significant building into a 5-star hotel and spa in Buxton brought many challenges for main contractor Vinci Construction. Not least was the requirement to protect the network of ancient thermal springs that runs underneath Buxton Crescent. Endress+Hauser helped by installing a level monitoring solution for three swimming pools to ensure they didn’t leak into the aquifer and cause problems for the nearby Nestlé bottling plant.
Endress+Hauser’s FMR60 high-frequency radar device was used to monitor the pool level, in combination with a reference pool that was built to take into account evaporation and rainfall. Air and water temperatures were also monitored. At the end of the test period, the data from the swimming pools and the reference tank was compared to determine the change in level.
“Endress+Hauser’s involvement was immensely helpful,” confirms Senior Engineer Jenny Baxter. “It was hugely beneficial for us to be able to hand the data over to the client and show them the pools weren’t leaking. That was really reassuring.”Get in touch
