The Newcastle Community Centre is a 70,000 square foot facility housing an indoor aquatic centre that includes a six lane 25m lap pool, a warm therapeutic/leisure pool and change room facilities. The building also includes program areas comprising a full sized gymnasium, public lounge, multi-purpose community meeting rooms, and administration spaces. A future twin pad arena is also planned for the facility.
Energy efficient building mechanical systems feature air-to-air heat recovery for the pool change rooms and a pool dehumidification unit that reclaims compressor heat and transfers it to the pool water or supply air.
