Hornsby Aquatic Centre
Complimenting ADCO’s extensive successes in the Aquatic Centre market, ADCO’s NSW team completed this award-winning sporting facility for Hornsby Council in Sydney’s Northern Suburbs. The new Hornsby Aquatic and Leisure Centre houses a gymnasium, café, administration offices, multi-purpose rooms for club and day recreation activities, and three different pool types; 25 metre learn to swim pool, 50 metre indoor leisure pool and a 50 metre outdoor Olympic pool accompanied with seating for 500 spectators. The indoor leisure pool houses multiple water features and a two-metre-high enclosed kid’s water slide for the local community to enjoy. The core structure of the development incorporated under-croft car parking below the main pool deck.
The $25 million development was as an incredibly challenging project with the main structure suspended off the side of a steep ravine adjacent to Berowa Valley bushlands. The project has been incredibly well received by the local community and has seen strong patronage since opening its doors to the public.
This project won the NSW State MBA award for best Sporting Facility over $20 million at the State MBA Construction Awards 2015.
