Naturally Ventilated Hydrotherapy Pool Facility


Scope Building NT Pty Ltd is a Northern Territory owned and operated Construction Company. With over 60 years combined experience, the company specialises in local building development, including the construction of the new $3.1 million Hydrotherapy Pool at Palmerston Regional Hospital.

The Palmerston Hydrotherapy Pool facility is naturally ventilated with Breezway Louvre Windows
High level Breezway Powerlouvre Windows allow hot air to escape and be replenished by cool refreshing breezes from lower level louvres
Breezway Louvres have been installed on either side of the Hydrotherapy Pool Building for natural ventilation
Breezway Louvres are ideal for cross flow ventilation and remove the need for airconditioning in the Palmerston Hydropool Facility

The aquatic facility is the first purpose-built hydrotherapy pool developed by the Northern Territory Government. The facility includes a temperature-controlled pool, with a ramp and hoist access for mobility-impaired patients.

Breezway Altair Louvre Windows and industrial ceiling fans are installed into the building to maximise natural cross flow ventilation and air circulation, thereby removing the need for air conditioning. Automated Breezway Powerlouvre Windows are installed up high so hot built-up air can be flushed out quickly and be replenished with cool air from lower level louvres. The Powerlouvre Windows are operated by the Breezway Apptivate Control Unit while lower level louvres are manually operated by Arens wind up controls. The Altair Louvre Windows are finished with a high performance powdercoat to ensure long life durability due to the atmospheric conditions and are installed in a Breezway Easyscreen Surround Frame with security bars for added protection.

Situated near the rehabilitation ward of the Palmerston Regional Hospital, the facility has been designed to improve the quality of life for patients while upskilling practitioners to better care for and treat Territorians.
