“Very fine example, perhaps the best multi-sports facility in a community like this”
- Sir Brian Lochore, immediate past chairman of the Hillary Commission, keynote speaker at the opening ceremony 2001.
Boon Goldsmith Bhaskar Brebner Team Architects Ltd were engaged in 1997 to conduct public consultation and prepare briefs and concept designs for four new facilities: Reception / sports centre, leisure pool, museum, public toilets.
We were later commissioned to provide full service for a combined events centre and pool complex incorporating public toilets.
The pool consists of a new 8 lane x 25m multi purpose pool, with beach, learners’ / hydrotherapy pool, children’s pool, hydroslide and tiered seating for 280 people.
The Events Centre is a multipurpose 2 court venue containing 900 retractable seat bleachers and sprung sports floor.
Amenities include wet and dry change rooms, office space and reception, café and 200m² mezzanine floor with viewing to pool and events centre.
