Australian Institute of Sport Aquatic Testing and Training Centre
The unique design of the Australian Institute of Sport’s aquatic testing and training facility provides world-leading technology and facilities for the training and testing of elite competitive swimmers.
The state-of-the-art pool is designed to produce world records and its technology provides coaches, athletes and scientists with unique training and performance analysis facilities.
The building incorporates natural and mechanized climatic control systems designed to minimise condensation. Double glazed walls and indirect overhead operating windows provide controlled natural light, with the whole building able to be opened to create a natural outdoor environment.
The post tensioned long-span central roof truss system incorporates natural lighting, ventilation and overhead monitoring facilities. The unique folded aluminium roof structural system was developed by COX to provide high quality thermal, acoustic and condensation performance, and to minimise maintenance costs.
