Aquatic Sports Facilities
Since 2000 we have designed 8 major community aquatic facility projects for public and private clients. These include the award winning Mermaid Beach LivingWell Club and the major upgrade of the Leichhardt Aquatic Centre Gym including a new 5 star Health club for Leichhardt Council. We are currently working on a new staff Health Centre for Macquarie Bank.
Our clients have included Marrickville Council, Leichhardt Council, Mosman Council, Bankstown Council and Pittwater Council. We can offer specialist advice on:
• The incorporation of ESD in the demanding pool environments as well as user facilities such as change rooms etc.
• The best layouts and access/security arrangements
• The incorporation of environmental graphics and public art to upgrade the visual experience.
In 2001 we were approached to design LivingWell Health Clubs Worldwide Standard fitness centre of 2,000m2 each club included an indoor aquatic centre. Since that time we have developed an expertise in the design of various types of Fitness Centres and Indoor Sports facilities for commercial operation; and recently combining our skills in the education sector we have designed the new UWS teaching Fitness Centre for their Penrith Campus. The UWS Sports Centre and the new Leichhardt Aquatic Centre Fitness Centre are both under construction and nearing completion.
This experience allows us to plan layouts of new centres quickly. We understand the types of equipment required, their costs, uses and layout requirements. We have templates for the layout and planning of cardio areas, resistance areas, aquatic facilities, change rooms, testing rooms / facilities, running tracks, trampoline and gymnastics areas which we can use to help generate planning options very quickly.
