The Hillenbrand Aquatic Center Improvements project included the renovation of a 1,000,000-gallon competition pool and the addition of a pool equipment room located on the University of Arizona’s campus in Tucson, AZ. The facility functions as a competition and training pool for student athletes and Olympians. Renovations of the pool consisted of the demolition of the original lap pool, the installation of a 65-meter by 25-yard-wide, 8-foot to 9-foot deep lap pool, and the removal of the original dive pool for construction of the pool equipment room. The equipment room was constructed on a concrete foundation with a concrete masonry unit block structural frame with hollow-core plank roof structure, a brick veneer exterior, and a TPO roof. Demolition of the existing pool and construction of the new competition pool took place a few feet from the secondary lap pool, which remained open and active throughout the project. Additionally, the construction site was adjacent to the university’s basketball stadium, which hosted several thousand people each home basketball game. The CORE team actively collaborated with the university and athletic program stakeholders to create a logistics plan that ensured safety while maintaining schedule goals. Through detailed communication and flexibility, CORE ultimately delivered a successful project with minimal impact to the campus.
