Placement of Equipment – Exposure to the pool atmosphere (chlorine) has corroded equipment including the main electrical panel. Relocation of the electrical room/panels and creating environmental separation will be included in the project.
Chlorination – Chlorine gas is used to maintain the cleanliness of the pool in conjunction with the filtration systems which are outdated. This will be addressed by building a purpose built mechanical room, updating the filtration system and changing over to a liquid chlorine and U.V. system to ensure the best pool environment possible.
Pool Tank Accessibility – The toddler pool, leisure pool, swirl pool and lap pools do not have wheel chair access and limit accessibility. The renovation will address accessibility issues allowing opportunities for all leisure centre users to swim and recreate.
In addition to the aquatic area upgrades, staff are recommending priority upgrades to the main floor (lobby area) and change rooms that would improve accessibility and create a more inviting and welcoming environment for Leisure Centre guests.
To assist with costs, an additional $800,000 is available through lifecycle reserves in 2017. The balance of any increased funding requirements can be internally financed similar to the original funding model of the project. The internal financing is through the Capital Works Reserve with repayment by facility lifecycle reserves. An increase in the loan would extend the existing payback period of just under 5 years. Please check back on this page for updates regarding budgets and funding. Today’s costs cannot be determined without a reassessment of detailed design.
