Delivered as a Design and Construct project, WRA were novated to the head contractor and provided full design and documentation services for the project. The main component of the building comprises a pool hall that has been developed as fully glazed form, enabling views from Cranbourne Road, with glimpses of light, sky and vegetation.
The centre uses passive design features such as shading, ventilation, thermal mass and separation and daylight to reduce energy and water consumption of the building. Co-generation, HVAC pressurisation and rainwater harvesting are the major ESD design elements that have been used along with solar panels and grey water recycling. The functional components include 50m pool, Warm water, play, learn to swim and toddlers pools, water slides and water play tower – as well as 900m2 gym and four group exercise spaces.
