Roof goes up on aquatic centre
THE roof of the $5.3 million new aquatic centre at Maryborough is now in place, with work progressing rapidly in the past few weeks.
Win Construction Queensland site foreman Chris Jamieson said tradies were now working on all of the internal electrical and plumbing work in the buildings.
"Once that is complete we will begin constructing the interior areas and erecting walls," Mr Jamieson said.
He said the children's play area still remained a primary focus at the pool centre site.
"The kids area is quite complex because it all centres around a feature wall," Mr Jamieson said.
"Hopefully the primary wall of the area will be poured next week, which will allow us to move forward with the area."
But Mr Jamieson said wet weather had taken a toll, and could delay completion of the works after rain prevented exterior work being carried out earlier this year.
"Unfortunately the rain prevented us from doing a lot of exterior work like pouring concrete," Mr Jamieson said.
"But we are doing our best to get the project back on track, so that we can deliver it as close as possible to its expected finish date."
The multi-million-dollar Aquatic Centre construction replaces the old Maryborough pool and is expected to be finished in September.
