The Selwyn Aquatic Centre marked its next big step as the walls began to go up around the new pool last week.

The new pool hall’s giant 30 metre wooden roof beams will begin to be craned into place this week. The new pool and its infrastructure has been completed and with the walls going up it is well on track to be open in March 2021.

The Foster Park Indoor Courts build is also moving to the next stage, with the courts’ innovative wall cladding starting to go up this week. The Kingspan panelling provides both high quality insulation and removes the need for internal cladding.

Sports equipment for the centre is also on its way, having set sail from Australia last week. Once the panelling is in place work will begin on the roof and internal fit out ahead of the building’s planned opening in time for the next winter sports season.
