Aquatic Adventures is located at a high traffic intersection in Hilliard, Ohio, near a major interstate exchange. It is the Midwest’s premier aquatic center offering scuba training, swimming lessons for all ages, water fitness and lap swimming.
Because of the highly visible location, the owner wanted a visually appealing structure. As such, a sun screen was utilized on a high roof at the south end of the building and arched roofs with high bay windows. One of the challenges for this project was the deep foundations that had to be used at some locations because of the timing of the deep pool installation.
The facility includes a 14,000-square-foot natatorium with two pools and 4,000 square feet of retail floor space. Another challenge for this project was the short design and construction schedule. Flexibility by the design and construction team in handling changes during the short schedule was crucial to the success of this project.
