Minnipa Swimming Pool
Minnipa – South Australia
The town of Minnipa in country South Australia loves its swimming pool, a vital part of its community infrastructure. Having successfully applied for funding from a variety of sources, a substantial upgrade to the pool could be completed. Importantly, this redevelopment would ensure the sustainability of this beloved pool.
The previous pool experienced a number of issues, simple repairs and maintenance could’ve been possible. However, their frequency and costs signaled that a larger renovation project was needed. Particularly, a large scale redevelopment would ensure the continuing viability of the pool. In 2019 State Wide Pool Services Australia successfully won the offer to assist the community to convert the pool to a wet-deck pool.
The project involved:
- Demolishing the existing gutter on two sides of the pool
- Removing all tiles on side walls
- Installing slip resistant tiles
It was a great honor for us to see the project through to completion. Furthermore, we felt we could give something further back to the community by entering the pool in the 2020 Swimming Pool and Spa Association’s Awards for Excellence, in a new category ‘Community Project.’
The Minnipa Pool Renovation achieved Gold for both the South Australian Awards and National Awards in this category, a fantastic recognition for the pool committee and district.
