January 2023 – Update(Back to top)
As we enter the final months of construction, important building works continue this month at the site of our new Parramatta Aquatic Centre. When it opens, this multifunctional facility will become a central hub where the community can exercise, swim or enjoy the centre with friends and family all year round.
What’s happening outside?
With good weather on our side, the base slabs that form the internal ring and walking path have been poured. The foundations for the bleachers beside the outdoor 50m pool are now set and an awning that covers this area is being fitted. Soon, this spectator seating will provide the perfect shaded viewing point for swimming carnivals and other large community events.
Work on the upper ring canopy that circles the pool well underway, with the structural steel roof now complete.
A majority of the façade has now been installed, including glazing, and the external gabion walls have been substantially completed at both the Eastern and Western entry points to the facility.
What’s happening inside?
With a large amount of internal formwork now removed and the structural slabs for the indoor pools poured, work is progressing well inside. Mechanical equipment, water treatment and pool filtration services are now being installed. Bleachers alongside the 25m indoor recreation pool have also been installed and final fittings on skylights over the internal pool areas are being completed.
The final concrete slab and base plates for the internal water play area are also in position, with floor and wall tiles being laid in the toilets and changerooms.
In the Health and Wellness Centre, the timber wall linings and timber floors have been largely completed.
The beautiful wood panelling continues through to the centre’s entrance, where members and visitors will be greeted by reception staff.
Finally, work is progressing in the centre’s exciting new café. Customers will be offered modern healthy food choices, along with simple fast-food options that can be enjoyed in a casual seating environment, serving both indoor and outdoor spaces.
