Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre

The Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre (PARC) is a new state-of-the-art regional health and fitness centre that provides mix use facilities and pool leisure areas, including a 50m pool, learn to swim pool, splash deck areas, program pools and waterslides. Other facilities include a spa, sauna and steam room, a gymnasium, group exercise rooms, health and wellness centre and a café area.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged to provide pre and post contract cost management services. This included assessment of pool installation options and negotiation with the lowest tenderer to incorporate an increased scope of works. We ensured that variations were agreed promptly throughout the contract and that cost reports were issued regularly to accurately reflect the projected final account. Our team also provided post contract to complete an asset management plan. This exercise included providing both a 30-year capital replacement plan and maintenance plan for the facility.


Value management, asset management and pre and post contract cost management services including; cost planning, variation valuations, payment valuations, tender assessments, financial reporting and final account agreement.

The outcome

The project reached practical completion in November 2014 and was delivered on time and within budget. The asset management plan accurately represents the final account and will be used by Council for projecting future funding needs.
