Works are progressing well at the sprawling Aquatic Centre and Sports Precinct at the school in North Paramatta. The development, located between the school’s existing gymnasium, multipurpose hall, oval and tennis courts, will comprise of 25 metre eight-lane Water Polo competition pool, 15 metre learn to swim pool, fitness centre and tiered seating for spectators and supporters.
The project team recently completed the core concrete structure which runs over three floors. This achievement enabled the installation of a 70 metre, 20 tonne structural steel truss lifted on top of 4 x 30cm diameter concrete columns! Two of these trusses were the heaviest lifts of the project, with an impressive 4.8 tonnes and 60 metre reach for the crane. Once complete, 150 tonnes of detailed steel will have been installed at the precinct.
