Casey ARC Has Reopened
Casey ARC has reopened and we couldn't be more excited!
After initially closing in March, 2020 because of COVID-19 and then having the roof replaced, Casey ARC is soon to reopen its doors to the public.
Our swimming lessons program has been fully revamped and will be launched when the centre reopens.
Our child care centre will also reopen, giving more users the opportunity to use our facilities and know that their children are well cared for when they do.
The revamp of the centre will also allowed us to enable 24/7 access to the gym, which will be available shortly after reopening.
What has been done?
The City of Casey took the opportunity, whilst the centre was closed to do some much needed work on replacing the roof of the centre, which is now 20 years old. Doing the work now meant that the centre wouldn't have to close for months in 2022 when the work was originally scheduled. Merging it with the closure due to Covid meant the centre would not have to endure another closure next year.
In addition to having the roof replaced, the solar panels on the roof have been replaced as well. Why is this worth mentioning? Because the new solar panels are 8 times more efficient than the previous panels, which means our carbon footprint will be greatly reduced. As an example, we use over 4,000 kilowatts of electricity every day so the more we can offset with solar power, the better.
Whilst the roof is being replaced, we have had additional works done within the centre. This includes building a glass wall between the pool area and the reception and cafe area. This has the benefit of a more temperate and pleasant environment for visitors and allows the Centre to move to a 24/7 model with the gym as we are now able to block off access to the pools area.
We have worked hard to ensure that your visit to Casey ARC will be safe and enjoyable. We will be adhering to all of the health and safety guidelines of the State government and ensuring that social distancing is done. We will have QR code scanning for everyone attending the Centre and hand sanitisers throughout the Centre. If you do not feel well or have had a COVID test and no result, we ask that you do not attend the Centre.

As with any business, we have had staff move on and we are always looking for new staff to join the team. We have a number of positions available and if you or someone you know would be interested, check them out here.
