Maribyrnong Aquatic Centre, VIC
The Maribyrnong Aquatic Centre replaced the ageing Footscray Swim Centre as the City of Maribyrnong’s key aquatic, health, fitness and leisure facility when it opened in July 2006.
Conveniently located next to Highpoint Shopping Centre the aquatic centre attracts an annual patronage in excess of 800,000 visits each year.
The centre is comprised of a 50m long, 8 lane swimming pool with viewing stand, leisure pool with beach entry, warm water exercise/hydrotherapy pool, spa, sauna & steam-room and male, female and disabled/family change rooms. Ceramic Solutions proudly supplied and installed all ceramic tiles for the project utilising Agrob Buchtal Chroma pool tiles in all pools. The leisure pool employed a selection of three Chroma colours in a graduated pattern across the floor. For the changerooms, architects Prior & Cheney selected Stroeher Secuton for the floor and Agrob Buchtal Plural 200x200mm white wall tiles.
