Splash Devonport Aquatic and Leisure Centre, TAS
This $14 million project is Devonport’s largest infrastructure development in history and consists of an existing 50 metre outdoor swimming pool, a new 25 metre indoor pool, infant awareness pool, warm water pool, foyer, fitness gym, change rooms and a café/kiosk.
The original Devonport Aquatic Centre opened in 1973 and following a feasibility study, Devonport City Council were provided with the confidence to proceed with an indoor aquatic centre development.
As part of the new development, Ceramic Solutions provided and installed over 2,000 Agrob Buchtal tiles to the pool interiors, kiosk and food prep facility, as well as change rooms and amenities area.
When using German made Agrob Buchtal tiles, the focus is on having an attractive design with practical benefits. Series such as Chroma and Plural comply with all guidelines concerning non-slip safety and offer easy cleaning and a permanently attractive, hard wearing surface.
Featured within the amenities area is Jasba Loop circular mosaics, creating a beautiful cascading ocean colour effect and a pleasant atmosphere for patrons thanks to the mosaics HT effect, which prevents the growth of bacteria and germs, as well as eliminating bad odours in the room.
