Complete metamorphosis

Thermen Soesterberg has undergone a complete metamorphosis and offers its guests a unique and complete wellness experience. The guests are immersed in luxury and relaxation and the atmospheric gas fires add to this experience. A DRU Metro 200 Eco Wave next to the swimming pool and two DRU Maestro 100 Eco Wave gas fires in the chill-down area and restaurant are the result of excellent and very close collaboration between Thermen Soesterberg, fireplace specialist Bruggeman and fireplace manufacturer DRU.

Night-time work

Wijnand Rouweler from Bruggeman fireplace specialists: “The first big challenge was that, during the renovation phase, Thermen Soesterberg was open for business as usual for seven days a week and until late in the evenings. In order not to disturb the guests, we had to work early in the mornings and at night. This demands flexibility and very good cooperation from all parties involved.”

Making the impossible possible

The second challenge, according to Rouweler, was the installation of the fireplace in the middle of the restaurant. Rouweler: “The trick was to conceal the flue pipe. This was achieved using the exclusive DRU PowerVent extended flue system, enabling us to install the flue under the floors, around various bends and over a considerable distance. What initially seemed impossible was delivered to our client with ease.
