The Hororata School Board of Trustees have identified suspected earthquake damage to their existing concrete formed pool. The damage is understood to relate largely to the reticulation services, concrete surface cracks, and is resulting in the loss of approximately one foot of water per day. Rectification is assumed to require repair/replacement of the pool’s services, however, the school also wishes to take this opportunity to alter and upgrade the pool to increase its usability, particularly for younger/smaller students.

The current design of the pool sees the depth of the pool increase from 900mm at its shallowest point to 1.8m at the deep end. At its center, the pool is approximately 1.5m deep. The pool is approximately 22m in length, 7m wide.
The gradient at which the depth of the pool increases has proven problematic for the school, with teachers struggling to instruct younger students who quickly become stranded in water which is over their head. The school does, however, have a requirement that the pool reach an ultimate depth of 1.8m as this is used for diving activity and instruction.
Consequently, a key requirement of this project is to level the entire shallow end (50% of the pool area), to achieve a constant depth of 900mm to the pools centre (at which point it will drop sharply to 1.5m and then increase in depth through to 1.8m at the deep end).
In addition to repairing earthquake associated damage, and ‘shallowing the pool’, other requirements detailed below include the installation of user friendly entrance/exit steps and the installation of new handrails.
