Aquatic Centre more than a hole in the ground
June 2012

After many years of planning and debate, Kapiti's Coastlands Aquatic Centre is starting to emerge as a significant building.

Last week saw an official visit to the site, off Kapiti Rd, Paraparaumu, by Kapiti councillors, sponsors and aquatic centre trustees.

The complex, expected to cost over $22 million, is on schedule to be completed in 2013. Just on $18million will be paid by KCDC with the rest being raised by a community trust.

The dominating feature on the site at present is the huge excavated hole that will form the main 25m by 25m swimming pool.

Visible from off site are the large precast tapered columns which will form the outside of the pool's hall.

The fitting of the see-through ceiling for the centre is expected in July.
