Aquatic centre’s final design

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

The final design concept plans for the Corowa Aquatic Centre project have been presented to Federation Council and the Swimming Pool Advisory Committee from the designer, Stephen Johansson of Facility Design Group. 

The final plans include an outdoor eight-lane 50m pool, an indoor heated multipurpose pool that includes 3 x 25m lanes for lap swimming and training as well as a learn to swim/warm water exercise area with varied depths to accommodate a variety of users. 

Federation Council Mayor, Pat Bourke said this is yet another important milestone in this critical project for Federation Council and community which is due to be completed in the second half of 2020. 

“Following review of the plans, council and the Swimming Pool Advisory Committee have confirmed acceptance of the overall concept design with no amendments requested or required,” he said.

“The new aquatic centre will support our residents to have access to the very best facility that we could responsibly achieve given the project budget and operating costs. 

“Coupled with the other sporting facilities in close proximity, the new facility will be the centre piece of the sporting precinct which will be a significant attraction for the entire region.” 

Council will now generate the design and construct tender documentation which will include a very detailed schedule and call for price options on key items, particularly where substantial price variations between possible solutions exist. 

The final designs are available for viewing from council’s website www.federationcouncil.nsw.gov.au
