While undertaking the roof restoration works, it became evident that the extent of the damage was a lot more significant than expected. These areas could not be identified previously during normal operations.

Whilst Council has access to these areas through the current closure, the following additional remediation works will now be undertaken on the pool hall ceiling including:

  • Re-coating of ceiling purlins;
  • Re-coating of ceiling acoustic support framing;
  • Additional substructure repairs to end walls and plasterboard; and
  • Additional spot repairs to structural steel framing.

These additional works will see a delay for each stage of the project, with the new expected completion dates for each stage as follows:

  • Stage 1 - mid June 2023
  • Stage 2 – mid September 2023

Works completed so far:

  • Spot repairs to structural steel columns and roof structure;
  • Replacement of pool hall gutter/drainage systems above the 25m pool;
  • Steel column base plate re-coating; and
  • Minor leak and internal lining repairs.

We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to the facility opening in the near future.
