This project included a 15,000 sf addition and the renovation of an additional 5,000sf of existing program space. The addition included the demolition of an existing indoor pool and the construction of a new 8 lane children’s pool which was 40’ wide and 4’ deep throughout. The project also included a parent viewing area as well as extensive weight training facilities; including free weights and state of the art cardio vascular equipment. The 2nd floor featured first class adult locker facilities.
The renovation portion of the project included the conversion of existing adult locker rooms to children’s locker facilities. The major components of construction were concrete block, steel frame and glulam beams. One of the challenges of this project was the installation of 16” block bearing walls in the winter. The well established YMCA pool method was employed which provides an under pool tunnel around the circumference of the bottom of the pool which allows easy access to all fitting and filtration systems below the pool deck and the along sides of the pool walls.
