The much anticipated facility was built on the site of the town’s existing library which was demolished as the initial phase of the project.

A double height steel frame structure was erected on-site incorporating the new 25m, six lane swimming pool (including associated facilities of changing rooms and shower areas) and the two storey library facility. The contemporary design of the leisure complex features large areas of facetted glazing to the façade, alongside striking translucent cladding panels and a sustainable green sedum roof structure.

The architectural design cues continue inside the new building with exposed timber roof beams in the pool hall area and an absence of exposed ductwork to create clean lines and minimise overall maintenance costs. The new two storey library includes a café area, community meeting rooms, children’s party room and IT area.

Key Features

  • 25m x 6-lane competition swimming pool.
  • Two storey library facility.
  • Steel framed superstructure with large Glulam rafters opening over the pool.
