Say good bye to those dreadful mats… The floor surface surrounding the main pool, warm water pool, spa sauna and steam room has been completed. The team will finish off the caulking around the edge of pool tonight.
The team will then move on to the areas around the change rooms, this will also include the ramp leading up to the reception area and the ramp leading back to pool deck.
The waterslide area will commence Monday 16 April, there will be a shutdown of this area until further notice. This may impact the leisure pool area.
Splash park will be the last area to be completed and again this area will also be shut down until further notice.
No updates to report.
Flooring work is proceeding as scheduled and disruption to the pool users in minimal.
The Floor upgrade is moving fast and every day the pool hall is changing with new sections of floor being completed.
We have had some wonderful feedback about the new surface and we also can’t wait to get rid of all the mats for good.
Below is a few comments from some of our members.
“ I’m so glad those mats are gone. They were horrible looking, the new floor surface is looking great I can’t wait to see it completed.”
“The mats hurt my feet and were dangerous. I would almost trip every time. The new surface is so much better for me to walk on”
This week is a short week for the team who will be working on the pool surface near the program pool. This will not affect any swimming lessons.
Next week the team will complete the grandstand side and then will move onto the ramp leading up to reception.
We are now on a roll and the flooring process has improved. As a result there should now be less interruptions at the Centre.
The floor surface around the warm water pool has been completed and what a difference the space makes without the mats.
You will also now notice that the shower facilities on pool deck can now be easily identified with the different colour surface (blue). We believe this particular area will now be used more often and in return will continue to ensure that our pools stay hygienic and clean.
School change rooms have also been completed and again what a difference the removal of the mats has made.
The flooring team will now work their way around the main pool and we hope to have a large portion of the pool area done prior to the school holidays.
The water slide and splash park flooring areas are scheduled to be done after the school holidays. This will impact the space for an undetermined period of time. (More information will be provided)
The first 4 zones of the floor upgrade have been completed and what an impact the new floor has had on the centre.
The next zone to be completed will be the Warm Water Pool and Multipurpose room area (Zone 5)
At this stage the below areas will be closed until further notice.
- Spa, Sauna and Steam Room are closed due to minor maintenance: Shower tiling, Spa temp and chlorine level, reinstall of spa gate.
Check out the gallery to see the latest pictures.
The final touches are occurring to the first two zones of the floor upgrade and we can’t wait to show you all.
We are just waiting on a few tests prior to reopening the area.
Please see our Gallery below for some pictures of the new surface.
At this stage the below areas will be closed and further updates to follows.
· Deep end of the main pool is open from 5.30am on Friday, 9 March.
· Spa, Sauna and Steam Room are closed
· Limited access to shallow end of the main pool between 3.30-7.30pm
· Deep Water Workout on Tuesday 6th March is cancelled
The deep end of the main pool will be closed for the next few days as a safety precaution. This is because as the flooring project continues, life guards will have limited access to the walkway behind the deep end of the pool. With glare from lighting and outside, they will have limited visibility to the bottom of the pool and this is an unnecessary risk to patron safety.
The Spa, Sauna and Steam Room are still closed and will be until 11March.
There will be limited access to the shallow end of the main pool between 3.30 - 7.30pm over the next few days whilst swimming lessons are on and the deep end is closed.
Aqua Yoga on Saturday 3rd and Monday 5th and Deep Water Workout on Tuesday 6th March are cancelled.
As always, we apologise for any inconvenience this will cause pool users and appreciate their understanding as we endeavour to make Casey RACE a better place to visit.
The flooring project is coming along well. However, we are at the stage of the project where users will be affected by closures to different areas of the centre. These closures will start on Monday 26 February when the Spa, Sauna and Steam Room will be closed for two weeks until 11 March. This will also include the pool deck behind the deep end of the main pool and in front of the spa, sauna and steam room, which will be closed for access until 5 March.
We realise this will cause major disruption to many of our users who use the Spa, Sauna and Steam Room on a regular basis. During this time, we recommend that users go to Casey ARC, where they will have access to the same facilities and entry for members of Casey RACE is free. For more information or if this is not a suitable alternative we recommend speaking to Customer Service on your next visit.
While the flooring upgrade is happening, we will also be taking the opportunity to conduct some maintenance in the spa, sauna and steam room area including fixing the spa jets and lights as well as other maintenance in the area.
The boom will also be set at 25 metres between 26 February and 11 March to ensure the flooring work is done efficiently and without possible delay.
There will also be limited access in the shallow end of the main pool between 26 February and 4 March due to the floor upgrade at the rear of the main pool and no access to the deep end of the main pool during this period.
We realise this will be a very disruptive period for many users and we apologise for the inconvenience it will cause. If you have any question, please refer to our FAQs below or see Customer Service on your next visit.
Removal of the existing floor has now been completed around the following areas: Main pool, Spa area, Warm water pool, Group change rooms and the area between the male and female change rooms. The team are now in the process of going around and lowering each drain to ensure proper drainage will occur when the new flooring product is poured. The next stages are taking place with the removal of the existing flooring around the children’s splash area and the main beach entrance to the leisure pool. This should not impact access to this area.
Everything is going to plan and the next stage of the floor upgrade will commence shortly. This will involve re-levelling to the pool deck area to ensure proper drainage will occur. This will impact areas of the facility, as areas will need to be completely dry prior to the products being used and will need to allow drying time. Communications will be sent out to all members and updates will be posted on Facebook and the Casey RACE website.
The first 2 weeks of the project has been all about the demolition of the existing flooring. This involves scraping the top layer of flooring using small ride on equipment as well as a team grinding the flooring surface back to its original concrete surface. To date the team have been able to remove half of the pool deck surface. There may not appear to be much of a difference now as the mats have been placed back awaiting the next stages. You may also see a few red cones situated on pool deck. The cones are there as a precaution so please keep an eye out for them.
This week the remaining areas of the pool deck area will be removed and coming soon, the levelling and new floor will commence. This will create areas that will be closed for a period of time. We will provide as much notice as possible as to when this will happen as we are communicating daily with the construction team.
The walk way at the back of the 50m pool will be closed between 26/2/18 – 5/3/18.
The Spa, Sauna and Steam Room will be closed between 26/2/18 – 11/3/18.
We will do our best to minimise the affect on swimming lessons. We will keep you up to date on our Facebook page and the website. If lessons do need to be cancelled at any stage, you will be contacted directly by one of our team.
Dry group fitness classes will not be affected at this point in time. Changes may occur to aqua classes. Updates will be available on Facebook and the website.
Please see our Lap Lane Availability for more information on when the 50m pool will be available. This will remain as up to date as possible during this time.
Any changes to change room availability will be shown on our website and posted to our Facebook page.
The gym flooring will not be affected at this time. If this changes we will update you on our Facebook Page and the website.
