CPB Contractors, a CIMIC Group company, has secured a contract to design and build the Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre in Sydney, Australia.

The contract, awarded by the City of Sydney, will generate revenue of about $84m to CPB Contractors.

Upon completion, the centre is due to become the largest pool complex to be constructed in Sydney since the Olympic Games held in 2000.

The project will include a 50m heated outdoor pool set within a larger, irregular shaped beach pool. Furthermore, it will feature a 25m heated indoor and leisure pool, skate bowl and fitness training circuit, along with multipurpose sports field gym, cafe and crèche.

Work on the Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre is expected to begin in 2018 and will be completed in late 2019.

CIMIC Group CEO Michael Wright said: “CPB Contractors’ market-leading capabilities in major sports and social infrastructure strongly position us to deliver a world class, vibrant and socially-inclusive facility for the City of Sydney and local communities.”

CPB Contractors managing director Juan Santamaria said: “Our team has both the local and international expertise and project experience to deliver significant value for our client.

“Our flexible, multipurpose design will ensure that Gunyama is able to host a variety of activities, welcome locals and visitors from across Sydney, and remain adaptable to the city’s future growth requirements and sustainability expectations.”
