AQUATICS INTERNATIONAL received some great submissions from industry members who would love to give their facilities a renovation fix. While the judging was difficult, ultimately, Richelle Harvey with the Aqua Sports Center at Texas State University, San Marcos took the top prize:
Richelle identified 10 key areas that need renovation at her facility from the equipment room to ADA compliance issues. Here’s a sample of the issues she identified in the ventilation section of her winning entry:
“There is poor air circulation in the pool area. There is minimal control over the air temperature which has a major effect on water temperature control due to water evaporation. There is no air conditioning system in the pool room.
The electric heaters in the locker rooms fail multiple times each year. Provide air/heat into the restroom sections of the locker rooms. Removing the electrical heaters and adding steam heat and air conditioning with air circulation would be important. There is no control over the air temperature.”
For her efforts, Richelle will be rewarded with a two-hour phone consultation with Scot Hunsaker, president of St. Louis-based Counsilman-Hunsaker to go over her renovation needs and develop an action plan.
Congratulations Richelle! And thanks to all those who entered!
