Will the pool be closed for a long time?
The project can be built in two phases so that there is water open for public use most of the time during construction. In the recommended concept, the new leisure pool would be built first and the main tank would remain open during construction. When the leisure pool is complete, it would open and the main tank would be closed for replacement. This phased process would take between 16-20 months to complete. There will be short periods of time when both pools are unavailable. The alternative construction plan would be to close the entire pool for 12-15 months.
