Swimplex Aquatics wins building excellence awards
Specialist aquatic contractors and suppliers Swimplex Aquatics have been recognised in the NSW Master Builders' Association regional awards for building excellence.
The Coffs Harbour-based company won the award for Best Commercial Project (Sporting Facilities) costing $3 to $5 million for their redevelopment of the Coffs Harbour War Memorial Olympic Pool.
Swimplex's upgrade at the facility included the provision on outdoor and indoor solar-heated pools, a new kiosk, new change rooms and a splash pad/spray park for children.
Redevelopment Project Manager Jason Bailey explains that prior to the refurbishment says the old pool was losing thousands of gallons of water through leaks, and it had to be upgraded.
Bailey explained "the old pool facility didn't meet a lot of requirements as far as health turnover rates and also it was leaking quite substantially.
"The refurbishment as far as bringing that into line has been really important."
Based on a design brief by Facility Design Group Architects, the project involved:
• 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 won the 'design and construct' tender based on the use of the Myrtha Pools RenovAction technology system.
The 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."
Swimplex are experts in pool construction, renovation, refurbishment, filtration, water treatment, heating and the manufacture of innovative pool products. The company is also the Australian agent for Empex Watertoys and Hidroplay products.
