Outside amenities include an artificial pitch and running track, an obstacle course, ball park, volleyball courts and jetties for climbing and assault training. An important aim has been to create a robust building with solid, maintenance-free materials that can with stand aggresive use. Exposed and untreated concrete, brick, unglazed tiles and oiled wood are used extensively in the interior.

The swimming pools are constructed from stainless steel. The exterior is mainly white polymer composite panels, zinc standing seam cladding and oiled wood. The glass fibre panels are arranged in a shell formation that associates with the location, while at the same time giving a lightness and scale to the large façades.
