WSP provided an integrated service to the redevelopment, including mechanical, hydraulic, electrical, vertical transportation, fire protection, communications, security, as well as pool water treatment services.
CLIENT BRIEF/PROJECT CHALLENGES
The existing Lloyd Elsmore 20-year-old indoor heated pool complex consisted of a single recreation 25m lap pool and fitness centre. The redevelopment of the complex retained 350m² of the 25m lap pool for recreation and lap swimming,while converting the remaining 100m² into a splash pool with water features.
A large new spa was added with new sauna and steam rooms. Extensions to the complex enabled the addition of a new Learners Pool and Fina Compliant 25m Lap Pool. The Fitness Centre administration and changing areas were all refurbished.
The ongoing popularity of this community facility is a testament to the success of the project. The services are continually heavily loaded and are providing high levels of water quality and comfort as designed.

A key design change for Manukau City was the use of DE filters from a supplier they had not used before. They have then reverted to the same supplier for the design of the Mountfort Park Aquatic Centre, which WSP also successfully designed.
