A report in Building (page 39, 6 February 2004) referred to the Optimum Pool, commissioned by Sport England from S&P Architects, and S&P's launch of a new swimming pool project called Swim25.
We have been asked to make the following points clear:
  • The Sport England Optimum Pool project remains in being.

  • Swim25 is a different design and concept from the Optimum Pool.

  • Sport England did not apply or threaten to apply for an injunction against S&P from using the Optimum brand and the parties continue to work together in their normal constructive and positive manner.

  • Neither had any connection with the Clissold Leisure Centre swimming pool project, referred to in our article.

We are happy to clarify our report in this way and apologise for any wrong impression caused.
