The 450 square metre building will be 5.2 metres in height at its eaves and the skeleton will be made from high-grade aluminium extrusiions.

The walling will be insulated 40mm thick steel sandwich classing while one electric shutter door and a pedestrian fire door are included in the designs.

The application states that the "proposed building will provide economic opportunities and help to facilitate the expansion and growth of Lakes Showering Spaces."
