Frequently Asked Questions

How big is a SPAshell?

The SPAshell is a configurable modular solution and the dimensions and foot print requirement is approximately 20m wide & 15m deep. The largest pods are 10m long & 4m wide for ease of transport.

How much would a SPAshell cost?

The SPAshell building is significantly less than a traditional building. A fully fitted SPAshell building including four treatment rooms, thermal, vitality pool, relaxation lounge and back of house (standard configuration) is £475,000 plus delivery and VAT. With the configurator process we can work through the design to create a customised building and the costs are calculated automatically so you know exactly what capital is required.

What are the funding options for SPAshell?

The SPAshell building can be purchased or leased, giving you total flexibility when it comes to funding your project.

Do we need planning?

SPAshell requires planning and Spa Creators will manage this process. The building design and concept helps with the planning process and planers have looked at the SPAshell favourably as it has minimal impact to the site. Typically planning approval takes 8 weeks.

How do you design the SPAshell?

SPAshell has been designed to offer maximum flexibility and the configurator allows customisation for each site. The SPAshell design means there is no requirement for architects and consultants, reducing the professional fees typically associated with a traditional building design.

How much input can we have to the look and feel?

Spa Creators interior design will take your requirements into consideration. We’ll create a mood board for your approval, which will reflect the location and style of property. The exterior can also be selected by you and ranges from standard larch wood and glass through to stone.

What do we have to provide?

Nothing! SPAshell is delivered complete, including the building and the full fit out, so you don’t need to provide anything once you’ve signed off the full specification.

What do you require?

To install a SPAshell we require services – water, electricity, waste and telephone. The SPAshell building could operate off grid, if required, subject to the location and a site survey.

How quickly will it be installed?

SPAshell is installed in a day (subject to the configuration) and commissioned for use within a week. You’ll provide the groundworks and landscaping pre and post-delivery.

What is the life span of a SPAshell?

The SPAshell comes with a 10 year construction guarantee and 2 year manufacturing warranty. The SPAshell building life is over 50 years plus (if maintained correctly). Based on this the SPAshell building should be considered an appreciating asset.
