Swimming Pool Enclosure

Leichardt Council Swimming Centre


Temporary swimming pool enclosure over an existing pool enabled the aquatic centre to continue to provide their patrons with indoor swimming facilities, including swim school while the permanent indoor pool structure was being designed and built.  

Leichhardt Council engaged Australian Temporary Structures to construct a temporary swimming pool enclosure to house the popular pool.


The project was scoped & quoted in May and the construction began in June to accommodate the urgent timings required to remove the existing damaged pool cover. The temporary pool cover was a 15m x 35m Premium A-Frame Structure. The material was transported from the ATS warehouse in Braemar NSW to Leichhardt and was completed in just 1 week.

The build utilised a small team of 6: Project Manager, Operations Manager, Work, Health & Safety Manager & 3 x Building Crew. 

Pool Cover Overview:

  • Pool drained during the build

  • Structure in place for 12 months

  • 1 week, team of 6 to build

  • WHS facilitated throughout the build

  • Scissor lift, fork lift & crane was critical in building with limited access

Temporary gym built onto the car park


The popular Gym, jointly operated by the YMCA and a Local Council, sought an alternative venue to provide members with convenient gym facilities throughout the period of renovation and refurbishment of the existing venue.


The team utilised the gym’s existing car park to construct a 15m x 20m curved premium structure to create a temporary gym for members.

The build took one week to complete with a team of 6 people. Much of this time was spent packing in the floor due to the uneven surface of the existing car park space.

The structure was pegged and weighted to enable services under the floor and electricity for mainline power for electrical equipment.
