Lasseters Casino

Design Brief

The Casino is one of the main tourist attractions in Alice Springs.  Known as 'the Jewel of the Desert' the casino, although still extremely popular, was in desperate need of updating and a modern swimming pool was important to the owners plans.

State Wide Pool Services were approached to design a swimming pool which would cater to all ages and would provide for children's play, general recreation and adult exercise.

The Result

The multi purpose facility, located on the dry banks of the Todd River, is the centre of entertainment in Alice Springs and offers clientele luxury accommodation and facilities.

Mutitjulu

Mutitjulu is home to 400 Australians, primarily indigineous and is based only hundreds of metres away from our national icon, Ayers Rock.

ABC Report

Bathurst Island

Design Brief

While the Northern Territory Government explored the feasibility of upgrading the Nguiu Swimming Pool on Bathurst Island (north of Darwin), State Wide Pools was commissioned to prepare a Pool Assessment Report.

While the existing pool was only a few years old, certain deficiencies rendered those facilities unsuitable for most of that time.

State Wide Pool Services report consisted of:

a. An overview of systems

b. Analysis of systems and problems including:

  • pool hydraulics

  • plant and equipment

  • necessary repairs and safety concerns

Upon completion of this report, we were contracted to renovate the existing 25-metre pool and toddlers' pool.  These renovations included a complete upgrade of the hydraulics and plant.  For five months TILG provided accommodation for our team in this remote location.  All tools, plant and equipment were trucked to Darwin then ferried across to Bathurst Island.

The Result

The entire project cost $160,000 and as you can see by the photos, the real value lies in what this facility means to the health and enjoyment of the individuals and wider community that use it.
