Kalinda Primary School

Design Brief

Located in Griffith, NSW, Kalinda Primary School caters to the needs of children with disabilities.  Being located in a regional centre means that facilities around the school are limited.

In 2010 when the school decided to build its own hydrotherapy pool the consultants engaged State Wide Pool Services to provide design input and full construction services.

The Result

Kalinda Primary School hydrotherapy pool allows students to develop swimming and general movement skills in a warm and comfortable environment.  The use of UV and UFF systems provides for very high water quality.

Urrbrae Agricultural College

Design Brief

While we love building commercial swimming pools from scratch, often what's required is a major refurbishment of existing facilities. After an inspection of Urrbrae Agricultural College's 25 metre outdoor pool, State Wide Pool Services presented a proposal for works which was accepted by the College.

The Urrbrae pool's gutters were removed and replaced with a wet deck system on both sides. These measures enhanced the pool's aesthetics and helped with the conservation of water. Tiles then needed replacing along the pool sides and in other areas where years of wear and tear had taken their toll.

We removed the up-stand on both sides of the pool to provide a wet deck edge. Concrete 'cancer spots' were then treated by exposing the reo bars and treating them with appropriate products. Once again, tiles had to be replaced for this work to be completed.

The Result

Our stainless steel department then fabricated new ladders, expansion joints were resealed, existing starting blocks were replaced with convenient portable starting blocks and with the addition of new lane ropes, Urrbrae's $110,000 pool upgrade was complete.
