The Park Regis Hotel in Subiaco, Perth, is now home to Western Australia’s first free-standing rooftop composite fibreglass pool. The custom-designed pool, constructed and installed by Aqua Technics Commercial, was lifted by crane to the top of the nine-storey hotel, which is due for completion in late 2017.
Aqua Technics Commercial worked with builders Cooper & Oxley to install the pool, which was constructed by splicing together fibreglass pool sections to create a one-piece shell. The company’s in-house engineering department spent two years researching and developing free-standing pool designs.
“The Cooper & Oxley project has been a huge success,” said Aqua Technics Commercial Business Development Manager Darren Godden.
“The pool was built well under the typical concrete pool time frames and at a significantly reduced price. Our ability to install the pool in a matter of days provides a large saving to builder costs. We simply crane the pool into position with only one week on-site, compared to a minimum of three months with concrete pools.”
The pool is 11 m x 3.6 m, with a constant depth of 1.4 m. Fully tested to Australian Standards for commercial pools, it is also heated with commercial-rated equipment.
“We have been working with our internal engineers and commercial projects team to design a pool that would be a fully self-supporting structure whist maintaining a modern, sleek design,” said Godden.
“The result is an innovative 11 m commercial composite fibreglass swimming pool with contemporary mosaic waterline tiling, providing an uninterrupted swimming area overlooking Perth’s skyline.”
