J M Robson Aquatic Centre – Showcase of Efficient Design
On the morning of the 17 September 2020, Lithgow City Council was host to Mayor Robert Mustow and the senior management team of Richmond Valley Council, presenting on the innovative and efficient design of the J M Robson Aquatic Centre.
“Even in the initial stages of its refurbishment, Lithgow Council was aware of the need for year round access to aquatic facilities, in order to facilitate improvements in outcomes in the areas of health, education, social inclusion, economic stimulus and stability,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor, Cr. Ray Thompson. “It is Council’s objective to provide facilities that meets the needs of local people across all sectors and demographics, including people with disabilities, our indigenous community and youth.”
However, alongside these social benefits, the J M Robson Aquatic Centre is a regional showcase of efficient design, which aims to minimize operational costs while still providing an exceptional service to the community. Innovative building design improves air circulation within the pool hall, and alongside radiant floor heating and substantial insulation of exterior walls, dramatically reduces heating and cooling costs in all weather conditions.
“It is clear that Lithgow has the privilege of an Aquatic Centre which is a subject of desire across the state,” noted Mayor Thompson. “It was with great pleasure that Lithgow was able to assist Richmond Valley Council in the development of their own state-of-the-art facilities for the benefit of their constituents and visitors. I wish them the very best in the delivery of this project.”
