Work on the Coastlands Aquatic Centre roof has been delayed by a broken roof beam.

Kapiti Coast District Council community facilities group manager Tamsin Evans said there would be a slight delay because of the broken laminated beam.

"The beam is made up of multiple layers of glued laminated timber and a small section came apart during installation, causing the beam to break."

Ms Evans said the beam was trucked back to Auckland for repair and will be tested by Auckland University before being returned next week.

"This has caused a slight delay on the roof but workers have shifted their focus to other areas of the construction so as not to affect the overall timeline."

She said that despite the beam problem workers would arrive today to begin installing aluminium frames that will hold the roof's see-through plastic shell.

The $21 million project is set for completion in March next year.
