Work starts on $3.85M leisure centre upgrade

Work on a $3.85 million upgrade of the Peninsula Leisure Centre's heating, ventilation and air conditioning has started.

The system keeps the centre's 2.5million litres of swimming water heated and its 22.5million cubic metres of air cool for each of the 450,000 visits in a year, according to Central Coast Council administrator Mr Rik Hart.

"The Centre is now 17 years old and while it looks in amazing shape, major components of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system need to be replaced to ensure the pool, creche, courts, gym and other spaces are running at the perfect temperature, and can have new energy efficiencies incorporated to do our bit for the environment," he said.

The project is funded from Council general rates revenue.

Work started on April 26 with completion due in October.

"During this period there will be some disruptions to the gym and multi-purpose rooms, and the number of showers available for use will be reduced.

"The outdoor area to the north of the pool hall will be fenced off for the duration of works.

"The carparks along the western edge of the pool hall will be reserved for use to place construction equipment and handle deliveries.

"The driveway will be closed at times throughout the works for crane access.

"Temporary systems for pool hall space heating, pool water heating, and shower hot water heating will be in place, so there will be small fluctuations in air and water temperatures while the work is carried out."

Council Administrator, Rik Hart said the facility was well used by both locals and visitors to the area.

"This high-quality facility provides an abundance of fun and engaging spaces for the community to play, keep active, rehabilitate and connect socially," Mr Hart said.

"Not only is this a popular sport and recreational facility for residents, but it's also an extra tourist attraction for visitors to enjoy when holidaying on the Peninsula."
