Water World

Design Brief

Tea Tree Gully Council own and operate Waterworld, one of South Australia's largest outdoor swimming centres.  Decades old, Waterworld was in need of a makeover.  Attendances had been falling over many years and the cost of maintenance was increasing.

State Wide Pool Services won the contract for a major refurbishment which included:

  • Installation of a new disabled access ramp and wet deck gutters to the existing 50-metre pool

  • New wet deck gutters to the existing 25-metre pool

  • A new splash deck with a range of water toys

  • Waterslide runouts

Of course, these refurbished and new pools needed new tiling, stainless steel fittings, plant, hydraulics and balance tanks.

The Result

The result is a state-of-the-art outdoor swimming centre which could easily be mistaken for a brand new facility.

Quality materials and equipment will result in minimal maintenance and this, combined with huge increases in attendance rates has turned around the financial performance of the centre.

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.
