Last week a few of us went on a site visit to see the olympic sized, AMOT Pool currently under construction over in Albany.

Its very impressive, and I love the big glass dome ‘bubble’ at the end of the building. The design focuses on energy saving with cogeneration currently being explored to take advantage of surplus heat generation from a nearby data company.

While still a shell without its tiles and finshes, you can see that this will be an amazing building and space.

How many tiles do you think it takes to tile an olympic sized pool?

This is the learners pool, almost all tiled
