Commercial : Burnie Aquatic Centre

Terrylands, Burnie TAS 7320

       

Stubbs Constructions was awarded the Design & Construct contract for the redevelopment of the Burnie Aquatic Centre and the adjacent PCYC building.

The project included provision of a new 25m indoor heated pool and outdoor water play features with associated office and amenities to support the development. The project includes provision of car parking and associated civil works.

Due to significant groundwater and fill on the site, the pool and buildings were constructed on 12m piled footings. As an alternative to driven piles, screw piles were recommended to our client. Screw piles have none of the associated noise of driven piles. Due to elimination of ground vibration, the risk to the integrity of the adjacent 50m pool and neighbouring residential buildings was also eliminated.

The project is completed and was officially opened October 15 2016.
