The steel frames for the new buildings which will make up the city's refurbished Regional Aquatic Centre have been erected.

Concrete walls for some of the other buildings have also been completed, and City Council's Manager of Infrastructure, Paul DeLisio, said the $9.8 million project was running to schedule.

"We're still hoping to have it open by the first day of summer, the first of November," he told the BDT yesterday.

Construction crews have also started excavating earth in preparation for the building of the new hydrotherapy and program pool.

Work at the revamped Aquatic Centre began at the start of this year, with the original buildings being demolished in February.
