Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre - Lidcombe

Main Image
Gartner Rose are delighted to announce the safe and successful completion of the roofing and ceiling cladding at the Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre in Lidcombe for Cockram Constructions.

Scope of works:

  • 3000m2 of Insulated panel roofing installed over the grandstand and main pool hall. Aluminium sheeting was used due to the harsh chlorine environment.
  • 900m2 of aluminium "waveline" profile roofing including aluminium purlins to the existing manager's residence, kiosk, admin and kitchen.
  • 500m2 of aluminium LT7 to the plant rooms and other ancillary buildings.
  • Aluminium ½ round gutters and downpipes were used in conjunction with aluminium box gutters.
  • Inside the main pool hall and program pool hall Gartner Rose installed stainless steel cleats to the main heavy steel structure and from this installed aluminium rolled purlins. This allowed the installation of 1200m2 of aluminium 0.7 Waveline perforated roof sheets. Martini board acoustic insulation was installed behind the perforations. This allows the room to breathe but absorbs much of the echo from pool activities. The entire area had a birdcage scaffold deck built 1.8 meters below the ceiling line because there was no access via machine inside the pool itself.
