Northam Aquatic Facility

Northam Aquatic Facility

Located northeast of Perth in the Avon Valley, Northam officially opened the new $10m Aquatic Facility constructed by Cooper & Oxley, in January 2020.

This state-of-the-art facility is available to all local and surrounding residents and visitors, providing a new tourist attraction and destination, especially in the warmer summer months. It is also home to the local Northam Swimming Club, who provided a strong contribution to the project.

Our contract was directly to Commercial Aquatics who were engaged to undertake construction of the new 50m pool, complete with access ramp and an extended 2m section for the full size water polo field. The new concrete and tile leisure pool area incorporates multiple swimming lanes, a lap section, beach entry, separate toddlers pool and a covered 300mm deep, safe child’s play area.

Our package of works included, detailed earthworks, formwork, steelfixing, concrete pumping & placement. Concrete tolerances were to a bare minimum, involving intricate rebates and curved formwork sections.  Due to the strong commitment and dedication of the site team, this project was delivered on time and on budget to a very high quality standard. This has resulted in an ongoing partnership with Commercial Aquatics and by extension Cooper & Oxley.
