This new community aquatic centre delivers best practice sustainability, safety and supervision. Utilising water saving and heat capture technologies, the facility minimises energy usage, whilst the automatic natural ventilation controls minimise the requirement for mechanical services. The project includes a 50m heated swimming pool, and 18m program and therapy pool, children’s splash pool, café area, passive recreation spaces. Ancillary spaces include change rooms, administration, pool plant and reception areas. It is the first facility in Australia to incorporate ‘changing places’ accessible directly from dedicated change-in-bathing facilities to the therapy pool. This design is now the template for the provision of accessibility to all future Brisbane City Council pools.
