Summary: This outdoor recreational project was designed to provide a swimming pool
that would allow for competitive swimming events as well as leisure and
other recreational activities for the community.
Additionally, the recreation district in charge of the project
design and development required a wader pool.
The freestanding building for the complex has male and female
showers and locker rooms, a common concession area and the pool chemical
and mechanical rooms. Our assistance to the design of the project
encouraged the use of a vacuum sand filter that would also filter the
wader pool, yet, allow it to operate at a higher temperature.
This concept reduced the building footprint saving the owner
substantial construction costs.
also introduced the use of a multi-functional boiler. By using one boiler
with multiple heat exchangers we could heat the wader pool to 90 degrees,
the main pool to 82 degrees and provide all the hot water required by the
building for showers and the concession area. The boiler, chemical room,
and filter room were consolidated into a footprint approximately half the
size of a standard pool mechanical room.
