Wide ranging projects confirm strength and versatility of Commercial Aquatics Australia

Wide ranging projects confirm strength and versatility of Commercial Aquatics Australia
March 11, 2015

As one of Australia’s largest and most experienced companies specialising in the design, construction, renovation, service, maintenance and water treatment of commercial pools and aquatic centres, Commercial Aquatics Australia’s portfolio has an extensive portfolio of completed projects.

By offering a design and construct service to clients, the company has established itself as the pre-eminent partner for both government and non-government instrumentalities, bringing innovative ideas and technologically advanced solutions into the earliest planning stages. 

Commercial Aquatics Australia projects range from major competition and stadium venues, to pools for remote communities and mining camps. Recent trends towards less conventional installations have also seen Commercial Aquatics Australia pioneering the implementation of aquatic and recreation facilities and aquatic play complexes throughout both metropolitan and regional Australia. 

Another Commercial Aquatics Australia service receiving a great deal of interest is the provision of asset condition reports, which document not only the current state of an asset, but also the predicted rate at which it will deteriorate and require replacement and upgrading. This allows pool operators and owners to schedule necessary repairs, maintenance, shutdowns and capital works programs.  

Commenting on Commercial Aquatics Australia’s recent achievements, West Coast General Manager  Neil Daffen explains “I believe that there is no greater advantage in business than having a team of committed and loyal employees. 

“It is our employees that make our business succeed. Yet simply setting targets for our employees is not enough – we have to provide them with an environment that they are pleased, even excited, to work in. 

“We go to great lengths to ensure that all of our employees feel rewarded, appreciated, and challenged in their careers, but there’s more to it than that.

“I knew at the outset that we had to make a total commitment to comprehensive and ongoing staff training (and) I want to make sure that any trades we put into the field are across all the special skills and techniques that go with our business, and that they are fully up-to-date with the frequent technological breakthroughs that enhance the quality of the finished product we offer to our clients.”

As a good corporate citizen and an industry leader, Commercial Aquatics Australia is committed to supporting organisations like Royal Life Saving Society Australia and Life Saving Victoria, recognising the wonderful work done by the thousands of selfless volunteers to keep families and children safe in the water. 

The company is also an enthusiastic supporter of local and national industry associations such as the Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA), the Australian Leisure Facilities Association, Aquatics Recreation Victoria, the Leisure Institute of WA Aquatic and the Master Builders Association. 

As General Manager West Coast Jamie Brown adds “clients enjoy the confidence that comes from working with a team that has met and solved almost every design and building challenge in commercial pool construction. 

“We will only propose solutions that are efficient, workable and financially responsible  ... the company’s reputation depends on it.”

This new location is ideally placed for the Gateway Motorway with great access to the Brisbane CBD, the Airport and both the Sunshine and Gold Coast.
