Hydrothermspa has completed a major new spa consultancy project for a prestigious Paris club.

One of the oldest and most prestigious private clubs appointed the company as spa consultants. Advice was sought on re designing many aspects of the club including, lobby furniture, complete refurbishment of the spa showers, steaparis2smallm room, sauna and spa relaxation areas. The brief included a structural report and an environmental report on the levels of potential toxic substances in the building; this included testing for lead and asbestos.

The structural report has shown that there is considerable refurbishment work needed to be carried out to the fabric of the building including the reinforcing of metal and the concrete floors, damaged by the ingress of water and failure of the concrete mixture over time. Once the structural work is finished the reinstatement of the spa will take place and on completion. again be open to members.

How Spa Design affects the costs of running a Spa PDF Print
Friday, 01 February 2019 00:00

One of the key cost elements in the spa design that is sometimes overlooked is " How much is this spa costing me to run?" Salaries and overheads for the building are usually easily found out but how spreadsheet200x150much does it cost to heat and run these thermal units.A large sauna running for 10 hours with a constant dropping of temperature because of poor insulation and door openings will cost the client a considerable amount each month. A sauna stove maybe rated at 25 k watts and rates for electrical power can be very costly.Similarly a steam generator uses a lot of power to run. The more steam, the more the costs.This is on top of the energy required for such items as heated floors and benches or walls within the thermal rooms. During the spa design process this element can be incorporated into spa systems. It is therefore essential that during the spa design or consultancy phase that this crucial part of the technical design is incorporated into the overall spa or wellness planning.

Spa Design - Traditional sauna or Infra red PDF Print
Friday, 01 February 2019 00:00

What are the basic differences? The traditional timber sauna normally operates at around 80-100 degrees C and this heat from a stove is used to heat the air in the room. The Infra red sauna200x150sauna however, is actually heating the body directly and not the air. In the traditional sauna water is introduced on top of the heat source to add humidity to the air. The time for heating the infra red sauna is usually between 10-20 minutes, whereas the traditional sauna will take a minimum of half an hour to be ready for the first guest. It takes longer to start perspiring in an infrared sauna as the temperatures are much lower. The spa design has to take this into account as , it can for example impact on such areas as electrical load and water consumption and non slip surfaces.
