CIE AGM, followed by Lecture - Jubilee Pool Refurbishment - Restoring the Jewel in Penzance's Crown

Thursday 12th April

The CIE's AGM will take place, followed by the final Lecture of the CIE 2017/18 programme: Jubilee Pool Refurbishment - Restoring the Jewel in Penzance's Crown, to be delivered by Robin Andrew & Alan Ibbotson, Associate Engineer at Cormac:

The presentation will cover the with the history of the pool and the vital role it played in local community life over the last 80 years.  It is a Grade II listed building andbut it started to fall into disrepair in recent years and in 2014 it was badly damaged by the severe storms.  There was a real risk that funding could not be found to repair it, but out of this adversity a new partnership was formed including Cornwall Council, Penzance Town Council and the Friends of Jubilee Pool who worked together to seek external funding including nearly £2.0m of Costal Community Funding to rebuild and refurbish the Pool with the intention of handing it back to the People of Penzance to operate and maintain.  Works started in June 2015 and despite some very difficult engineering challenges including an extensive programme of rack anchoring and grouting, the Pool was re-opened on-time in May 2016 with “royal approval”.  In 2016 the anticipated visitor numbers of 25,000 was exceeded by over 60%. Such was its success that it was listed in the Top 50 of places to visit in the world by the New York Times! In the Spring of 2017 working closely with the Council’s heritage planning team improved accessibility works were completed.  The pool was formally handed over to a newCommunity Benefit Society in May 2017.  But engineering interest does not stop there as there is a real opportunity that geothermal energy can be used in the near future to heat parts of the Pool with perhaps the Pool becoming a year round attraction

This talk will commence at 6:00pm, and will be held in the Chapel Theatre, Penryn Campus, TR10 9EZ
