Icon Building Group won the Indoor Aquatic Centre project through the Local Government competitive tender process and was awarded as Lump Sum only contract.
Timing is everything when working in Lithgow due to the varying climatic conditions experienced during the winter months. What impressed Lithgow Council was the methodology in delivering the building and pool within a 12month program.
- A new Indoor 25m x 6 lane insulated tiled pool
- Adjoining a learn to swim pool
- Balance tanks
- State of the art plantroom
- Pool heating
- Curved roof panels constructed from 150mm thick foam cladded colorbond
The concrete concourse around the pool was hydronically heated with a solar-boosted gas system. The building was naturally ventilated using automatic louvres on the northern and southern elevations, with double glazed commercial framed windows to maintain an ambient temperature within the centre, and eliminate condensation.
Our milestone on this challenging project was to erect the structure first to avoid any weather delays and follow with the pool construction. This alternative solution proved to be successful with only two wet weather delays throughout the project due to snowfalls.
A major advantage when engaging us here at Icon is that we are ‘hands-on’ builders, and we ensure that attention to detail is required when building a water retaining structure. It’s proven with our leak-free track record!
Facility Design Group and Angelo, our site manager, were instrumental to ensure this major project on the central tablelands of New South Wales was delivered ready for the winter season.
Completing the project on time and within the budget, the point was the proven testimonial council required to award Stage 2 of the complex which was to renovate a leaking 50m x 9 lane pool with vinyl lining and reconstruct the gutters with a more modern wet deck grate system.
We have now completed seven Local Government Aquatic projects from New Indoor Aquatic Centres, Renovated Pools, Complete packages including Buildings, Kiosk, Kitchens, Amenities, Plant Rooms, Carparks, Landscaping and all Services.
