Crystal pools were one of Charles Rickard’s first clients in Australia and he looked after their domestic pool construction until 2004.
During that time, he designed and certified over 5000 pools. At the same time, together with Crystal Pools, he designed and certified 16 aquatic centres. A recent project of note was the Lyneham Leisure Centre in Canberra, next door to the National Hockey Centre. Besides the 50 metre racing pool there were two other leisure pools.
