Cambridge pool a step closer

​25 September 2017

Waipa District Council has awarded the contract to upgrade the Cambridge Pool.

Naylor Love Construction Limited, a national company with a division in Waikato, will start work on the design phase of the project this month.

Group manager service​ delivery Barry Bergin said bringing the contractor in at the design phase ensures every detail is carefully considered to deliver the best possible outcome.

“Naylor Love will work with the architect and bring a very practical approach to the finer design details. This design part of the project will be completed this year with physical work planned to start around March 2018.”

Naylor Love have recently completed a $5 million pool and fitness centre in Lower Hutt, a $35 million sports and aquatic centre in Ashburton, a $13 million aquatic centre in Christchurch and a $18 million pool complex at Albany Stadium in Auckland.

“Their background in building pool facilities means we are in very safe and experienced hands. They also share our vision for having a fantastic facility for the community to enjoy in time for summer 2019,” Bergin said.

The Cambridge Pool complex will include an upgrade of the existing outdoor pool, a new 10-lane indoor pool and learner’s pool, a hydrotherapy pool, spa and sauna and a children’s splash pad. There will be increased seating and a community room as well as car-parking and landscaping.

The existing pool will remain open for a shortened season this summer from Saturday 21 October – Sunday 25 February 2018. The complex will then close until the new facility reopens at the end of 2019.
