Aqualibrium Centre, Campbeltown

Situated on Kinloch Green in Campbeltown, the Aqualibrium has spectacular views over the Campbeltown Bay. The new state of the art, £7.5m multi-functional leisure complex, opened its doors to the public in 2006.

Long awaited, the sports and leisure facility was opened at an official ceremony by the then Scottish First Minister Jack McConnell.

The name for the centre was chosen by Caitlin Ronald (then 8 years old) who entered the competition run by Argyll & Bute Council to find the most suitable name for the building.

The Aqualibrium replaced the town’s old swimming pool, which had closed its doors some years earlier. Xypex Admix was the chosen waterproofing solution for the main 25 x 13 metre pool and the associated balance tanks.

Being a community project it was part funded by the European Regional Development under the Highlands and Islands Transitional Programme, as well as funds from Sport Scotland Lottery Fund Sports Facilities. This meant getting value for money was an important part of the selection process for the waterproofing. Xypex Admix brought value engineering options that maximised protection but minimised time on site and material costs.
