Commercial contracts driving growth

Poolwerx has renewed its commercial contracts with Stadiums Queensland to maintain the Sleeman Sports Complex, the Queensland Sports and Athletic Centre (QSAC) and the Gabba for a further three years.

CEO John O’Brien said the franchise had a strong focus on securing commercial work for its franchise partners and the Stadium Queensland contracts would be shared among three local franchise partners.

“Commercial work now makes up around 25% of total franchise partner sales and continues to be a source of growth for the franchise,” he said.

“Our business development team is continually looking for commercial opportunities, as they provide year-round income for our franchise partners.”

The contracts with Stadiums Queensland include the maintenance of two 50 m Olympic Pools, a 25 m community pool, a dive pool and a leisure pool at the Sleeman Sports Complex, along with a 25 m recovery pool, flume pool, and hot and cold spas at QSAC.

The franchise will also maintain the warm and cold spas at the Gabba.

O’Brien said along with high-profile commercial contracts such as these, Poolwerx franchise partners also maintain other commercial pools and fountains for councils, stratas, body corporates, defence facilities, health clubs, swim school and school pools.

“A number of our franchise partners have also moved into the area of pool and pool equipment rejuvenation, particularly in older suburbs where pools are often over 20 years old,” he said.

“Again, this type of work is not dependent on seasonality and provides year-round income for franchise partners.”
