Gunyama Park Aquatic and recreation centre is the largest pool complex to be built in the city since the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Unique to the project are 50m long steel trusses either side of the pool hall which support 36m long glulam mass timber beams. The Glulam beams have been used in a composite section with a CLT top panel to form a U-section which results in a more efficient structure over the large spans. These beams are the longest free-spanning mass timber beams in Australia.
