The new pool facility features a beautiful new swimming pool, wading pool, canopies, and play centers. It also includes a new shower and restroom facility with family changing rooms, concessions, and office and meeting spaces. The facility was built to service neighborhood residents and swimmers. The project also included construction of a new parking lot, and a great deal of landscape design and implementation.
MWGC demolished the 1,600‐sq‐ft pool equipment room, restroom, snack shack and guard shack. The 1960’s era buildings were replaced with a new 3,600‐sq‐ft CMU structure that includes galvanized hollow metal doors, Pella windows, brick veneer with precast stone cap, and stucco to reflect the design characteristics of the surrounding neighborhood. MWGC received a Gold Medal Building of America Award for this project and was featured in the Real Estate and Construction Review Magazine.
MWGC demolished the existing 1,600-sq-ft stacked bond masonry and wood framed building and built a new 3,000-sq-ft running bond masonry structure with pre-engineered wood trusses. The existing sewer and water services were reconnected and a new electric service was brought in. The new facility includes shower stalls, dressing and locker rooms, toilet rooms and reconfigured pool equipment rooms, staff office and lounge.
A new 4,000-sq-ft leisure pool, built in compliance with Colorado Health Code Regulations including the Virginia Graeme Baker Act, includes zero-depth entry, sprayers, a toddler slide, a current channel, underwater seating and a spectacular 20-ft water slide. The pool is available for recreational swimming as well as continued use for training sessions and lessons.
This project consisted of us managing 3 concurrent pool projects at separate locations for South Suburban Parks & Recreation. The 29,300 square-foot Ben Franklin Pool, 34,370 square-foot Harlow Pool, and 41,550 square-foot Holly Pool all received new bath houses, new slides, and significant renovations to the existing pool areas.
MWGC removed the concrete deck around the pools and replaced it with a sustainable deck and drainage system. A drainable sub-base between the club house and pool was installed to keep water away from the main building. A zero depth entry to the children's pool is being brought to ADA accessibility standards. Site improvements include fencing and landscape improvements. Shade structures are being installed for pool users on the deck.
