The Hills Shire Council has selected a Builder of Choice for a new $55 million aquatic centre in Sydney’s north-west suburb of Baulkham Hills.
ADCO was selected for the role and will redevelop the Waves Aquatic Centre from a community pool into an elite sporting facility.
When finished in 2021, the aquatic centre will include an International Swimming Federation approved, 50-metre, 10-lane, a 25-metre indoor learn-to-swim pool, a 20-metre warm water pool, gym and fitness centre, spa and sauna facilities, in addition to a new reception, retail facilities, off-street parking and clubhouse.
- Upgrade works begin on $63M aquatic centre
- Construction continues on Corryong events centre following bushfires
- Sod turned on $70M Pimpama Sports Hub
More than 40 schools and 360,000 residents are located nearby the facility, allowing it to host regional events and school swimming carnivals.
“Waves has served our region faithfully for more than 50 years, and many of us have fond memories of heady summer days spent splashing at our local pool,” The Hills Shire Mayor Michelle Byrne said.
“Council chose to embark on a visionary project to think innovatively about how Waves could serve our community in the future.”
