Shire of Halls Creek

Design & Construction of a Water Attraction at the Halls Creek Aquatic & Recreation Centre
Tender Number: RFT 2018-08

The Shire is seeking a suitable and experienced contractor to design and construct a water attraction at the Halls Creek Aquatic and Recreation Centre to complement our existing facilities which includes a 25m, eight-lane main pool and a leisure pool.

The target group for the water attraction is children, primarily aged between eight to 14 years old. The project objective is to maximise children’s attendance at the centre and thereby increase the health benefits from physical activity and bathing in chlorinated water.

Design outcomes include the water attraction being fun and engaging without unduly increasing operational costs, the feature being safe and complying with relevant safety standards, the design integrating with existing facilities (but not terminating in an existing pool), the water feature being able to be closed off from other facilities to provide flexibility in operations and it ideally being modular so it can be refreshed or added to when funds allowed. A pricing guide (of up to $300,000 excluding GST) is included in the tender.

A non-mandatory tender briefing meeting is to be held at 11.00 am on Wednesday 12 December 2018 at the Aquatic and Recreation Centre, 8 Egan Street, Halls Creek.
