The Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Center has been recognized for its leading sustainable design by the Green Building Council of Australia.
Brimbank Mayor Cr Jasmine Nguyen said: “The council is pleased with the progress of the highly anticipated Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre, which is on track to open to the public later this year”.
“This vibrant, welcoming and innovative multi-generational health and wellness center – the centerpiece of which will be a state-of-the-art aquatic and leisure center – is well advanced.
“The new aquatic center will not only be a place to improve your health and wellbeing, but it will also be a place where residents and visitors to Brimbank can vent and have a lot of fun.”
Consultations with key stakeholders have taken place throughout the project and will continue as part of the final design and construction phase of the project.
