Sports + Recreation.

AES has extensive experience designing aquatic and recreation centres of all sizes, including the award-winning Guildford Aquatic Centre and Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre.

Our projects have included the provision of lighting and electrical engineering services for lap, leisure, indoor and outdoor, and hot pools, as well as diving facilities, water slides, lazy rivers, steam rooms, and saunas. We have also designed peripheral areas of pools, such as change rooms, fitness rooms, reception, and lobby areas. Our recreation sector experience includes arena complexes that have housed ice rinks and interior amenity spaces, as well as recreational playing fields, urban parks, extensive green spaces, synthetic sports fields, tennis courts, and field houses.

In 2015, AES was honoured to receive the Interior Lighting Design Award of Excellence for the Guildford Recreation Centre Aquatic Addition project at the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America Illumination Awards, a competition that brings together projects from all over the world.
