SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium, Mooloolaba, Australia.

A longstanding history of projects with AAT's nearest aquarium.

Project Overview

AAT’s relationship with SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium – previously known as Underwater World – goes back way to a time before AAT was born as a company. AAT founder John Langmead worked at Underwater World in a range of roles in the 1980’s, before commencing a career in the design and construction of new aquariums.

Some years later, AAT was engaged to supply life support system components and undertake a range of aquarium specialist works to the facility. As part of a major refurbishment in 2007, AAT resized the acrylic tunnel sections whilst in place and added new silicone seals between each individual panel.

Over the years AAT has also supplied and installed a number of acrylic viewing panels and domes.
