YEAR OF COMPLETION: 2013
PROJECT : Canowindra Aquatic Centre Upgrade
LOCATION: Canowindra Aquatic Centre, CANOWINDRA, NSW, AUSTRALIA
ARGO provided architectural concept and documentation services for Beau Corp in a D&C package to Council to fully upgrade their 50-year facility. The works included widening and metricating the existing 50-yard pool to 50 metres and 8 lanes, fully refinishing all surfaces and a wheelchair ramp entry; a dedicated learn-to-swim pool and beach style pool with small children`s water play equipment; new change rooms and plant room and new concourses. A large retractable sun shading device features over the L-T-S and leisure pool and recent advice from the pool manager indicates that the increase in attendance is in the 8-fold and that visitors are staying much longer each visit. ARGO`s conceptual design allowed the Canowindra demographics to be created for specifically and the revived facility is a clear fit to community.
