ARV Pool Concourse Guidelines: Design construction management and maintenance considerations
Director Gray Barton was one of the six panel members for the ARV study and report into Pool Concourse Design, Construction, Management and Maintenance.
The aim of the study was to provide Local Council as aquatic facility providers with the broad knowledge needed to inform their understanding of pool concourse operational issues, performance, risk management, and technical details when considering a new or upgraded surface. The advantages and disadvantages of several commercially available surface options were assessed and site visits undertaken to evaluate those surfaces in operation at several venues in and around Melbourne.
Since the publication of the report in July 2011 the guidelines have become an industry standard and are regularly included with project briefs for new aquatic facilities.
