Kane Constructions was awarded the $18 million lump sum contract in late 2010 to construct a new aquatic centre for the City of Greater Dandenong in Melbourne Victoria.

The Noble Park Aquatic Centre (NPAC) provides the community with a well designed multipurpose facility which offers a diverse range of aquatic, sporting and recreation opportunities to all sections of the community inclusive of the cultural diversity of the City of Greater Dandenong.

The facility includes:

A 50 metre heated outdoor pool with ramp access which can be converted into two 25 metre pools.
An indoor heated program / leisure pool
Reception / administration / offices
Café with external access to Ross Reserve
Three multipurpose rooms
Changing facilities with access for families and people with disabilities
The centre's waterslide, which is the biggest in Melbourne and a popular regional destination, will be refurbished
Large outdoor aquatic/splash playground with tipping bucket and fountains
New shade structures over the outdoor pool and for patrons to sit under
BBQ facilities, grass game areas and sun loungers
Access to the broader Ross Reserve for a range of outdoor sporting activities

Works were completed in January 2012 with centre opened to the public in February. The project represented the first major works undertaken since the facility was opened some 50 years ago.

The successful delivery of NPAC is another example of Kane Constructions strong track record in sports and aquatic centres in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. It is also represents our fourth project with the City of Greater Dandenong since the Drum Theatre in 2006.
