Techlam recently supplied the main roof structure to this new state-of-the-art facility in Hobsonville, Auckland. The facility features a new 20m indoor pool purpose-built for lessons, with water heated to 32°C for comfort, and high-tech filtration ensuring excellent water quality.
Cassidy Construction engaged Techlam to supply the main rafters, complete with factory epoxied connections to enable quick and easy installation on site. Due to the nature of the installation, there was zero tolerance across the building width, and the members had to be detailed with extreme accuracy.
The members arrived on site, right in line with the construction sequence, and were installed effortlessly.
This is another great example of how working closely with trades can ensure the successful and painless delivery of a commercial project, all whilst keeping within the construction programme.
The new facility opened mid-May 2018.
