Summary Aquatic centres are popular recreational facilities in Australia. These buildings have experienced increasing demand over the past few decades. Aquatic centres are complex building types accommodating diverse facilities that are distinct in their functional requirements. The high-energy intensity and growing desire for better indoor environmental quality in aquatic centres have resulted in a marked increase in energy consumption in this sector which presents a great challenge in terms of new construction and renovation. This chapter provides an overview of the characteristics of aquatic centres, highlighting the challenges in evaluating the performance of these buildings. A methodology for evaluating the design and operational performance of these buildings is also proposed.
