Bangor Aurora Aquatic & Leisure Complex has officially opened. The new £38m leisure facility was completed in March 2013. The development of the centre includes a £15m investment from the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure (DCAL), administered by Sport Northern Ireland.
The complex includes the development of Northern Ireland's first FINA standard 50 metre swimming pool, water zone with sidewinder slide and gym. Bangor Aurora will take the lead in the development of swimming within the borough and expectations are high that future sporting events will be hosted there.
B+W’s scope included the design, supply & commissioning of; 50m x 25m competition pool c/w two movable booms and two movable floors; 25m x 15m x 5m deep diving pool, with movable floor and diving bubble cushion; 25m x 20m leisure pool with four-chamber wave machine, 2 spas and filtered water supplies to and control of the flume rides and water play structures.
