Sod turn marks beginning of Waves Baulkham Hills construction
ADCO and The Hills Shire Council celebrated the beginning of construction at our Waves Aquatic Centre site in Sydney’s north-west suburb of Baulkham Hills.
We were pleased to welcome Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne and her fellow Councillors to the site yesterday, joining our NSW State Manager John Basilisco for a sod turn to symbolise the beginning of construction on the important community project.
In May, The Hills Shire Council announced that ADCO had been chosen to redevelop the much-loved local pool into an elite sporting and community facility, in a rigorous selection process.
When finished, the $55 million facility will offer a FINA-approved 50-metre, 10-lane Olympic swimming pool, a 25-metre indoor learn-to-swim pool, a 20-metre warm water pool, gym and fitness centre, spa and sauna facilities, in addition to a new reception, retail facilities, off-street parking and clubhouse.
With over 40 schools and 360,000 residents just a short drive from the centre, the facility will also be able to host regional events and school swimming carnivals.
