project details

Completion Date:
July 1995
Tim Cameron, APIN Facilities Team

Sitzler was awarded the contract after extensive negotiation with the Department of Defence to meet the project budget. Sitzler was pro-active in tabling cost savings throughout the negotiation stage. A substantial number of design changes were proposed by Sitzler and accepted by the Department of Defence to meet the project budget.

The project consisted of the construction of a six-lane 25 metre swimming pool with shade structure and landscaped surround.

During the construction of the project more funds became available with a wading pool and change room facility added to the contract at a negotiated price. In addition tiles were added to the floor of the pool. We experienced a long lead time in sourcing the imported tiles from overseas delaying the overall project.

Due to the change in scope of works the project duration was increased with a number of extension of times given.
