Liquid Blu are an extremely competent and professional company, responsive to client needs and have highly skilled and experienced staff... I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any future projects that they seek to be
involved in in the future.

The fully developed centre offers superior performance and ‘state of the art’ facilities for elite training, competition and recreational swimming, water polo, and diving. Stage 1 included a FINA 50m x 25m pool with movable boom for flexibility of programming. 

Stage 2 included a 4000sqm canopy over the 50m pool, 650 seat grandstand, and dedicated control centre complete with amenities, and full equipment to conduct race meets. 

Stage 3 is the largest stage of the proposed master plan redevelopment. This stage involved reconfiguring the site to allow a new entry point off a public forecourt, and strengthens the centres connection to the RRC’s ‘Riverwalk’ project.
