Construction is currently underway for the AMOT pool, which is sited next door to MISH (Millennium Institute of Sport and Health) and is an Olympic sized pool, with learn to swim facilities.
The facility was first considered as part of consideration for a 2018 Commonwealth Games Host Bid but then progressed without the “legacy event” additional spectator seating accordingly. The design focuses on energy saving with co-generation currently being explored to take advantage of surplus heat generation from a nearby data company.
So watch this Olympic sized space for updates.
