WAIS Sports Centre – Indoor & Outdoor Pool

Winner of SPASA WA Award

Congratulations to Commercial Aquatics on being named the gold winner for the concrete spas located at the Western Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS). The pictured spas meet all the defined criteria for high performance athletes and incorporates a warm water walk spa pool, a cool walk plunge pool and a multi-zone spa pool. The WAIS facility was initially built in 1983 and long overdue for additional space and more modern facilities. As part of the state government funding, a major motivation for completion of the centre was the soon to be Rio de Janeiro Olympics, allowing enough time for WA athletes to prepare themselves for the games. The facility has a floor area of 5,000m2 and features tiles from Agrob Buchtal's 'Chroma' and 'Basis 3+' series within the hydrotherapy recovery area. The highly sophisticated centre will ensure Western Australian athletes remain at the forefront of performance sport, providing them with facilities that are essential to supporting the journey to highly competitive international games.
