Crystal Lagoons poised for the Next Big Thing28 September, 2016 / News
Crystal Lagoons continues to make waves in Australia, attending the NSW Urban Development Institute of Australia State Conference as a Gold Sustainability Sponsor alongside Urbangrowth NSW, the government’s urban transformation agency.
The conference, headlined as The Next Big Thing in Urban Development was opened by the NSW Planning Minister Rob Stokes who spoke of the need to rethink the Great Australian Dream to deal with the pressures of a growing population and a diminishing supply of land suitable for residential development.
The inevitable shrinking of lot size places a greater focus upon the public domain with the need to create amenity to enhance the liveability of new suburbs and towns on the city fringe.
Crystal Lagoons has the capability to play a major part in the expansion of Australia’s capital cities particularly in the growth corridors which the government has identified for new subdivision.
Western Sydney, which is poised for unprecedented growth with the development of a second Sydney airport at Badgerys Creek as well as continued government investment in infrastructure, has the capacity to match Sydney in every way except one – access to water.
Parramatta, Sydney’s second CBD, is 40km from the beach; Penrith and the New West is 70km. Yet Western Sydney is several degrees warmer than the Sydney CBD, explaining why a Crystal Lagoon is the obvious preferred amenity for residents who make their home in Western Sydney.
Since establishing an Australian office, Crystal Lagoons has been involved in discussions with Australia’s leading residential developers and local government representatives, exploring the potential to build Crystal Lagoons within new subdivisions.
The appeal is obvious. Crystal Lagoons is able to build crystal clear lagoons of unlimited size in any location using any type of water – salt, fresh or brackish – providing an amenity that the whole family can enjoy, for swimming, sailing, paddle boarding and kayaking.
Construction costs are low especially when compared to the establishment costs of a golf course. From a sustainability perspective, Crystal Lagoons trumps both golf courses and parks, consuming up to half the water of a park of the same size and up to 30 times less water than a golf course. Our technology, protected by 1500 worldwide patents, uses up to 100 times fewer chemicals than conventional swimming pool systems and only 2 per cent of the energy.
With more than 40 projects currently in discussion, Crystal Lagoons is looking forward to being the next big thing in Australia’s urban development.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
