Britex Project Manager: Mr. Scott Fowler & Mr. Tony Clynes

Britex Project Role

Britex was engaged by the architect and building contractor to assist in the design, manufacture and installation of specially fabricated stainless steel fixtures within the sports and aquatic centre development. This process included generating shop drawings, consultation in material selection, manufacturing each fixture in our primary fabrication plant, project managing and coordinating the installation of fixtures on site. Stainless
steel works and fixtures for the project included:

  • Stainless steel panels fabricated using #8 (mirror finish) grade 316 stainless steel that provides maximum resilience to the harsh, chlorinated air within the pool area. These mirror panels were positioned above adjacent to the swimming areas and were shaped to integrate in a complementary way to the contours of adjoining surfaces.
  • Stainless steel plenum ducts
About the Development

The Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre (GESAC) is proudly owned and operated by the Glen Eira City Council and is one of Australia’s premier sports and aquatic centres. It was built by Council in partnership with the Commonwealth and Victorian Governments. GESAC was designed around the needs of the Glen Eira population, paying particular attention to the needs of seniors (eg. hydrotherapy), youngsters (eg. learn-to-swim) as well as those of all ages and abilities seeking improved health and plenty of fun. Designs for the facility were released in early 2009 and significant funding contributions were received of $10 million from the Federal Government and $2.5 million from the Victorian State Government.
An option on an indoor sport stadium was included as part of the tender subject to funding. Council was able to secure another $2 million from
the State Government in late 2009 to allow this to be included as part of the project. The construction contract was awarded in October 2009 and
GESAC opened in 2012.
