Sport, Leisure and Aquatic Centre Business Case and Design Concepts


The Shire sought a new facility that provided a range of indoor and outdoor sporting, fitness and recreation activities to meet the existing and future needs of the population. The facility to be designed was to be one that would serve the needs of the community for the next 20+ years; maximise the variety and accessibility of services and the quality of the facilities developed, whilst catering for as many user groups as possible and minimising the future operating and replacement costs.

What we did

  • Visited the centre and proposed site, and met with staff and user groups over two days.
  • Consulted with some 32 additional user groups, Councillors, peak sporting bodies and other stakeholders were interviewed by telephone.  
  • Prepared for a 10 lane 25m competition pool with a 4 lane 50m deep water extension; a beach entry leisure pool and water play area; gym, 3 indoor courts and 4 squash courts.
  • Additional rectangular playing fields, cricket ground, bowls green and outdoor courts were designed, supported by a sports club pavilion.
