Lake Macquarie Community Swim Centre: A Safe Haven for Young Swimmers

Lake Macquarie Council recognized the need to provide a safe and accessible swim centre for babies and young children to learn to swim year-round. Our team at LTAA Architecture embarked on a mission to design and construct a facility that would meet the needs of the community while adhering to stringent building codes and regulations.

Project Overview

To expedite the construction process and minimize costs, we opted for a prefab shed design, seamlessly integrating a new inground pool within. Despite the prefabricated nature of the structure, our team was tasked with designing internal bathrooms and amenities to meet Building Code of Australia (BCA) and Australian Standards (AS) requirements, ensuring the highest standards of safety and functionality.

Collaboration and Coordination

The success of this project hinged on effective coordination between multiple stakeholders. Our team worked closely with Pluim Construction, the appointed builder, as well as BCA consultants and the steel shed company to ensure seamless integration of all components. Through open communication and a collaborative approach, we navigated the complexities of the project with efficiency and precision.

Community Impact

Approved by the local council, this project represents a significant investment in the community, providing a vital amenity for residents of all ages. The swim centre not only offers a safe environment for children to learn to swim but also serves as a hub for community engagement and recreation, promoting health and well-being.


The creation of the Community Swim Centre for Lake Macquarie Council underscores our commitment to delivering innovative solutions that address the unique needs of our clients and communities. Through a blend of creative design, technical expertise, and collaborative teamwork, we have successfully brought this vision to life, enhancing the quality of life for residents and fostering a sense of community pride.
