Newtown School is a central city campus on a constrained site with limited recreational space. This project is to upgrade the school’s existing pool facility with a focus on structural strengthening and removal of seismic at risk elements.

The pool facility was originally constructed in 1942 as an open air complex, in the late 1970’s the existing structure was erected to enclose the pool. The steel structure has suffered from corrosion to critical members and some of the concrete block walls added lacked reinforcing.

The work proposed is stage one of a phased approach to fully refurbish the facility and will include this time remedial work to structural steel elements, removal of non compliant concrete block walls, replacement of the metal roof with an insulated panel system, replacement of the concrete floor about the pool and erection of part external walls. Some internal work will be undertaken to the change rooms and disabled toilet along with replacement of electrical and fire detection.

This procurement looks for a professional main building contractor that can employ appropriately experienced staff, competent sub contractors and proven suppliers to deliver a highly performing and robust refurbishment project.

The scheme will be traditionally executed with a full design team employed by the Newtown School Board of Trustees producing full construction documentation.
