QUORN WAR MEMORIAL SWIMMING POOL
Client: Port Lincoln Council
Location: Quorn, SA
Constructed in the 1960s, the Quorn War Memorial Swimming Centre was at the end of its service life. The pool is a major part of community recreational facilities available during summertime in the remote northern town of Quorn.
Due to the Council’s scale, value for money was an essential factor of these major upgrade works, which included:
25m x 7m main pool with new disability ramp and spanning shade structures.
8m x 6m children’s recreation pool with leisure water activities and beach access all sides.
New offices, kiosk, swimming clubrooms and change facilities.
Existing pool shell fully retiled. Conversion of existing scum gutter to wet deck pool edge.
New pool plant using precoat UFF (DE) filters to improve water quality, reduce water usage, reduce chemical usage and reduced plant room footprint.
Separated main pool and children’s pool plant systems to reduce water treatment requirements, water usage and operational costs.
New wet deck pool showers to reduce pool filter and water treatment.
Roof mounted pool solar heating improving water temperature and increasing facility usage while minimizing operational costs.
