Completion Date


The new Aquatic Center provides the district with a facility for its students to participate in a competitive swim program, as well as an environment to engage with the city and its community. Additionally there are learn-to-swim classes to help promote water safety for residents, which is critical in this area surrounded by rivers and lakes. The 52,000-square-foot building contains two saline water venues; one for competition and one for recreation, as well as support and community meeting spaces. Features include:


• District administrative offices, locker rooms, concession area, reception area, competition pool with adjacent spectator seating for 420, recreation pool, therapy pool and spa, as well as community meeting and event rooms.


• An operationally efficient building that is self-sustaining and utilizes the recreation pool revenue to offset the operating costs of the facility and support the competition pool.


• Mechanical systems feature heat recovery and high-efficiency boilers, lowering energy use and operational costs for the district.


• Daylighting with perimeter clerestory windows, view glazing and large skylights provide a connection to the exterior environment.
