CITY of Stirling is investigating the impact the collapse of builder Cooper & Oxley will have on the Scarborough Beach Pool.

The Perth construction firm entered voluntary administration on February 8, with Hall Chadwick appointed as external administrators.

It was responsible for building the $26 million pool facility, which opened on January 22.

Infrastructure director Michael Littleton said the City was seeking information on the potential ramifications.

“The City has sought some clarification from the appointed administrator on Cooper & Oxley’s position with respect to the Scarborough Beach Pool,” he said.

“It is important to acknowledge that Cooper & Oxley have entered voluntary administration and our understanding is that the company’s director is working hard to negotiate suitable arrangements to continue to operate.”
