ST CUTHBERTS COLLEGE CENTENNIAL POOL
St Cuthberts College Centennial Pool
Malcolm Hope, Board of Trustees
The complex is a high end facility featuring a FINA approved 25 metre swimming pool with a movable floor at the deep end allowing the pool to be used for a wide variety of water sports, including competitive swimming and water polo. The complex will also include a learner’s pool, a viewing deck, changing facilities, a student support area, internal second level concrete seating and a large second level gym overlooking the pool. Total floor area is 4550m² and 1523m³ concrete laid.
The complex was built inside a functioning college keeping the safety of the college staff and pupils as paramount to the success of the project. Resource consent conditions put a restriction on material delivery time and all deliveries needed to be well coordinated. 34m long laminated beams had to be transported into the complex across an existing sports facility, requiring a high degree of planning. Quality finishes have been incorporated throughout the facility and combine with the complex geological features on site to make this a very challenging, high profile project.
