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.
SWPS won the contract for a major refurbishment which included:
- Installation of a new disabled access ramp and wet deck gutters to the existing 50m pool
- New wet deck gutters to the existing 25m 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 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.
