"Great company, great resources and great people. Sue has managed to sell our house within only the two month period we agreed upon. The sale became unconditional within seven days and Sue managed to keep our lovely tenant in place, as we had promised them. Great job! Thank you Sue and your team. "

The Work has Begun!

14th Feb 18

Spending was approved in 2017 and this week, work will start on the $10.7m refurbishment of Hamilton's Waterworld.

Originally, most of the spending was earmarked to build a new pool however the complex was built in 1976 and it has had little spent on it since. Councillor Mark Bunting remarked "It wasn't an easy decision. It's a lot of money. Unfortunately, it would cost more if we don't do it, in my view."

The majority of spending will take place behind the scenes providing new pipes and filters for the 25 and 50 metre pools, a large amount of new piping to transfer water and a well overdue upgrade to fire safety systems.

The changes we will notice as members of the public are:

  • New non-slip flooring around the 25m, 50m and diving pools
  • A new raised concourse around the 50m pool (Making it slightly deeper than before)
  • A new moveable bulkhead (barrier) in the 50m pool
  • New heating, ventilation and air conditioning above the 25m, 50m and diving pools
  • New competition/race starting blocks for the 50m pool
  • New LED lighting above the 50m pool
  • New ceiling tiles

The refurbishment means that three of Waterworld's pools (The 25m and the 50m pools as well as the dive pool) will be closed for the duration of the work, which is scheduled to take eight months.

To compensate for these closures, the outdoor pool will be open for longer than usual and it will also be heated.

For future pool development, the Council will be asked to revisit the subject of adding another pool to the complex.

The Results are In - Who's the Fastest and Who's the Slowest?

You've got to move quickly in Invercargill if you want to buy a home.  Real estate in the southern-most city is among the fastest selling in the country, due to increased demand from first home buyers, real estate experts say. Of the 12 suburbs where houses spent the shortest time on the market last year, all but three had median property values of less than $500,000.  Invercargill dominated the list, with homes in four of the city's suburbs typically selling within 20 days or less.
