Overview

Recreation, culture and amenities are the indispensible elements in urban planning nowadays to develop a healthy and vibrant community. The scope of works of this recreational project comprises of construction of a two-storey swimming pool complex including an outdoor swimming pool with a capacity of 700 people, one outdoor training pool, one indoor heated training pool, one indoor Jacuzzi, and ancillary facilities, as well as landscaped areas with a community garden, a children’s play area and fitness stations. The design concept is to integrate the needs of residents from the local community across all age ranges.

In this technical visit, visitors will learn the design concept of the entire recreational facility, the techniques and construction methods of the functional buildings and landscape works. The sharing of the overcoming construction challenges encountered in the project due to being located between the urban developed area and wetland park would also be a learning experience to the visitors.
