Liz van Welie Aquatics


The new Liz van Welie Aquatics Centre features a swimming facility and adjoining carpark. The unique swimming pools are the first of their kind to be used in commercial operation in New Zealand. It utilises the MagnaPool system, using Magnesium and Potassium, for water treatment. The building ground floor of 1000m2 accommodates two pools [12mx6m and 25mx15m], reception, offices, changing rooms and operational facilities. The mezzanine of 200 m2 provides additional office space and an elevated public viewing area. We were engaged to provide structural, geotechnical, fire and civil services.


Not only was there a tight construction programme to be met, the Natare stainless steel pool manufacturer had strict specification limitations on the backfill material surrounding the pools – no compaction of fill or heavy machinery was allowed adjacent the pools.

Size: 1,200 m2

“Glue laminated portal frames with hidden epoxy grouted connections are a standout feature of the built space”
