Project Team

Architect:  Federick Gibbert Partnership

Engineer: Scott Wilson

Client Agent: Bird and MacDonald


Project Description

Close co-ordination was required between the site team and client in order to ensure that the hospital's services and supplies were not affected during the period of construction.

The Glulam timber framed pool is heated using a combination of both gas and solar power. Shading to the pool is provided by motorised louvres.

The building succeeded in winning the People's Choice category of Waverley Borough Council's Design Awards, New Building (non-residential) Category and Sustainable Design and Construction category.
