Architect: Hawkins\Brown
Contractor:  Gilbert Ash
Areas Supplied:  25m Pool Tank, Pool Surrounds, Wet areas and showers
Completed:  2017

The new centre was designed by Hawkins\Brown Architects as part of a four-stage masterplan for the school’s campus following on from a fire that destroyed the old swimming pool in 2014. The new building has been relocated from the west to the east side of the campus so it is now adjacent to the existing sports facilities.

The centre comprises of a 6 lane, 25m competition pool along with changing rooms and a multipurpose teaching and event space. The impressive building includes engineered wood that was prefabricated offsite allowing the building to be assembled in just over three weeks. The entire project therefore took just over a year from detailed design to completion.
