Top Ten Holiday Park Swimming Pool Development – Taupo

June 22, 2015

Taupo’s own Dome takes shape………
The dome (on the left of the picture) represents a major development at the Taupo Top Ten Holiday Park which includes a new Grotto or ‘swim in cave’ as the main attraction of the new swimming pool design.  The reinforced concrete dome which spans 9m and has a height of 3.5m above the water line, was cast on mounded pumice and sand bags which were removed after curing.  Embellishment of the dome will transform it into a cave with seating and mood lighting.  In addition there is a new ‘swim up’ bar (on the right of the picture) with underwater seating to greatly enhance the experience that is a Top Ten Holiday.  The engineering design and drafting for this project were completed by Neil Parinas and Paul Donaldson from our Taupo Office.
