Rockdale City Aquatic Centre Feasibility Study

Michael Davies Architecture was commissioned by Bayside Council

to undertake stakeholder consultation, needs determination, site

evaluation and feasibility study services for the redevelopment of

the Bexley Swimming Pool and its potential conversion to an indoor

and outdoor aquatic leisure centre.

Site Evaluation

As the first step,Michael Davies Architecture had a detailed

survey of the site prepared, to provide a detailed record of the

Bexley Swimming Pool asset to facilitate its future development.

Concurrently with this activity, we prepared a detailed site

assessment as a precursor to the architectural design process.

The analysis of existing site conditions included:

• Existing land utilisation

• Structures placement taking into account surrounding

buildings, including adjacent residences

• Facilities development

• Development phasing

• Movement systems, circulation and parking

• Site services

• Opportunities and constraints presented by current site


• Views and outlook

• Prevailing wind and climatic conditions and therefore best

orientation and location of building
