Background

For over 30 years there has been community discussions about an Aquatic Centre on the south coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula. In 2007, a joint venture between Alexandrina Council and the City of Victor Harbor was initiated to investigate a site, funding and construction opportunities.

Challenges

  • Site access was restricted during construction of a new road around the site
  • All excavation works carried out under the supervision of the Ngarrindjeri Regional Authority cultural observers

Outcomes

  • Facilitated a project coordinated between two council authorities to the satisfaction of all
  • Exceeded building air tightness requirements by twice the required outcome
  • ready for occupation before required dates allowing full testing, commissioning and staff training with time to spare
