SWIRL - Circular Head

While we are based in South Australia one of the best parts of our job is getting to travel to some of the most beautiful parts of our country. One of the places we really love going for work (everyone puts their hands up to work on these projects) is Tasmania.

This year we have again been working with local construction company Stubbs Constructions on a regional Aquatic Centre for the Circular Head Council now officially called SWIRL.

The centre features a 6 lane, 25-meter Pool, a Program Pool and Aquatic Play area for the North Western Community to use along side other sports and fitness facilities. While we cant take credit for the pool structures, that crystal clear water is the result of our pool water treatment system.

The pictures here might not be as stunning as the ones where we have built infinity edge pools on top of high rise apartments, but to us, giving a well deserved community a facility that has reliable, clean water is why we are in business anyway.

We cannot wait to get down to Tassie again and take a swim.

West Beach Parks

We have a great relationship with West Beach Parks (formally Adelaide Shores) having worked with them on their Splash Zone and Big 4 Parks Pool projects in the past.

For the Aqua Cove project, situated in the West Beach Parks Resort, we worked alongside Partek to create a new 25m long stunning pool, with dual water slides and play equipment.

The result is an amazing asset for resort guests to use.

Horsham Aquatic Centre

Work in progress - Horsham Memorial Outdoor Pool

We are thrilled to be awarded the contract for the revitalisation of the Horsham Outdoor Pool. The renovation project will see us completing a wet deck conversion, relining the pool structure and including an accessibility ramp.

The pool was originally marked for demolition as it sits alongside a new state of the art Aquatic and Leisure centre. However, passion from the Horsham Community that the outdoor pool be kept as a Summer swimming option was supported by the Council. These types of projects, where we can reinvigorate and fix issues with an ageing pool are such a rewarding project for our team.

Please contact us for more information on this project.

West Franklin Apartments

Rising skywards out of the humble bricks and mortar of the old Balfours site, West Franklin is the first in a series of mesmerising towers planned for an urban village already garnering a reputation as one of the city’s hippest.

The unique architectural design of the West Franklin development was always going to result in a breathtaking, unique pool. The 24-meter pool features four acrylic windows on the street facing side. A visual feature for those using the pool and passers-by who can see the turquoise waters of the 7th-floor pool from the street.

Our team worked tirelessly on the project to ensure the challenges of the pool windows were executed with the utmost care and attention to detail. Care you can see in the impeccable tiling and finishes to the pool.

UniSA Pridham Hall

Design Brief

The University of South Australia embarked upon the Pridham Hall Project in 2014. Designed to create a place for University Students to celebrate educational achievements alongside state of the art sport and fitness services. The site location, in the heart of the Adelaide CBD, as well as the desired basement level location of the pool, gave this project some unique challenges for construction of the pool and water treatment systems. 

Innovative Solutions

While a traditional concrete formed and poured pool was possible for this project, the benefits of the Natare pre-engineered, stainless steel pool system could not be overlooked.  The pre-fabricated modular system arrived in containers at our Dudley Park warehouse, allowing us to streamline the installation from start to finish.

With limited space on the site for a balance tank, the built-in surge control weir of the Natare system was a perfect choice. The water treatment system includes a Natare high capacity stainless steel vacuum sand pressure filter, which is the first to be installed in Australia. Rather than a traditional tiled finish, the pool is lined with a Natatec membrane which is durable, functional and reduces annual maintenance requirements. The Natatec liner also allowed us to have the University Logo laser cut to precision, which gives this urban, edgy pool a little more character.
