Myrtha Pools Technology For Coffs Harbour Pool
Coffs Harbour City Council has awarded the contract for a major upgrade of it's Coffs Harbour War Memorial Olympic Pool to Swimplex Aquatics.
Based on a design brief by Facility Design Group Architects, the $5.4 million project involves:
• Renovation of the 50 metre pool to FINA length standards with wet deck collection gutters;
• New soiled water and filtered water reticulation to the 50 metre pool;
• New compliant sand filtration plant for the 50 metre pool;
• New multi-function indoor heated 25 metre pool and plant;
• A children's splash pad with interactive water toys;
• Modernising of changerooms, management and kiosk facilities;
• Concrete grand stand seating; and
• A mix of modern shade structures.
Swimplex Aquatics won the 'design and construct' tender based on the use of the Myrtha Pools construction system.
Myrtha Pools technology consists of pre-engineering the pool from Stainless Steel panels with a durable heat bonded PVC surface.
As Mark McLaughlin of Swimplex Aquatics explains,"there are over 60 Myrtha commercial pools now in Australia," adding that "this project will follow on from our success in renovating municipal pool sites at Orange, Forbes, Cobar, Young and Port Pirie."
John Dangerfield of Swimplex adds, "we renovated our first 50 metre pool back in 1993 at Richmond Air Force Base.
"Since then we have embraced and even invented technologies to aid the process but using the Myrtha concept was our best step.
"The Myrtha product is continually evolving to the point where the company is now now recognised as the official world-wide partner of FINA."
Work on the Coffs Harbour War Memorial Olympic Pool project will commence after Easter and are expected to be completed in time for the start of the next swimming season.
Major works on Council's two other pools at Woolgoolga and Sawtell have been ear-marked for next year.
