Project Description

Remediation, structural repairs and civil works

First opened in 1965, the Sans Souci Leisure Centre pool has trained Olympians for generations and been much loved by local swimmers. Last year was time for a refurbishment.

An update was required to bring the pool in line with modern Olympic standards, as per the International Swimming Federation (FINA).

The pool upgrade came with a warranty request of 25 years to allow the aquatic centre to continue delivering swimming services to the community for decades to come.

Precision work on a tight timeframe

The project was timed for the quiet winter months when visitor numbers are low, making the project timeline a tight one. In addition there was a high number of rain weather events.

This program restraint was overcome by careful reprogramming and implementing shift work, enabling the project to be completed before the summer began.

Precision was required at all stages. The tolerance of the pool walls was challenging to achieve over the 50 metre length, and existing concrete walls had large variations in alignments.

We prepared the pool substrate with a special floor and wall leveller in order to achieve a straight surface, with maximum tolerances of 2 millimetres over the full length of the pool.

Custom solution leads to client satisfaction

A complete wall and floor system were specified to achieve the appropriate levels within the pool and waterproof the whole pool. An epoxy tile adhesive and grout system was utilised to achieve the longevity to warrant the new system.

The result is a beautiful new pool built to FINA standards, allowing new generations to learn to swim, enjoy some laps, or train for the Olympics.
