Aqua Technics Commercial has been awarded a 50-pool contract by Pindan Constructions.
The pools will be installed over a 20-week period in the Barrarda Estate, where 50 modular houses are being built to accommodate the residential operational workforce of the Chevron-operated Wheatstone LNG project – one of Australia’s largest resource projects.
Aqua Technics Commercial sent its first load of 10 pools in April, with more to follow. Each load will be transported by road using Aqua Technics Commercial’s own trucks. Along with the supply of 50 Athena model fibreglass pools, Aqua Technics Commercial is also supplying pool headers, cyclone-standard fencing, filter enclosures and temporary fencing.
“A team of qualified installers headed north to commence the installation of the project,” says operations manager, Darren Godden.
“More than four months of planning was completed prior to the dispatch of the first load, which included the adaption of quality procedures to suit the specific requirements of the project, auditing and compliance checks.”
Aqua Technics Commercial is a division of WA’s largest fibreglass swimming pool manufacturer, WA-owned and operated business Aquatic Leisure Technologies.
“We are celebrating our 40th year in business and have recently relocated to a new purpose built facility in Jandakot,” says commercial manager, Neville Fenton.
“The new facility gives us the manufacturing capability to produce the multiple pool loads and customised fibreglass solutions for commercial applications.”
“The pools have been manufactured using our patented Pool ColourGuard technology,” he says. “The technology protects the swimming pool colour from UV rays which is a must in the harsh northern climate of Australia.”
Previously installed commercial pools in the Pilbara region include the award-winning Berkeley River Lodge.
