A small refurbishment and refocus of an ageing community aquatic centre in Hawera, South Taranaki.

This project is one of the key components of the South Taranaki Leisure venues master planning project completed by BOON in 2006. This looked to broaden the demographic market for the existing indoor all season pool hall. The design incorporated a new toddler pool and family splash area, new spa pool, and new hydro slide complete with indoor tower and landing chute.

With a $3.1M (2009) project budget the addition of new indoor warm water pools plus splash and slide features was a challenging brief. A significant portion of this was invested in the area of mechanical and pool water services. To achieve budget BOON successfully administered construction contracts for main contractor, hydro slide, and pool water services.
