The design goal for the new pool house at White Park was to create an economical, accessible, versatile and easily maintained structure.
The new pool house will be built upon the existing building’s foundation that was found to be in good condition. The center space will open up to its full width for ease of access, operational control and a sense of welcoming. Sliding barn type doors at the east and west end of this space will provide security during off hours. A separate community room can be accessed during the facility’s off hours and before and after the operational season. A separate and accessible toilet will also be available for the adjoining parkland, playground and tennis courts. The general and family change rooms are open above the outer walls which eliminates the need for ventilation. Broad roof overhangs will protect these areas from inclement weather.
All walls are to be constructed with concrete masonry. All interior walls will either be painted or sealed and outside walls will be textured. The roof will be standing seam metal over heavy pressure treated timber with pre finished metal trim. All doors and frames will be painted galvanized steel. Windows shall be fiberglass or aluminum for durability. All plumbing fixtures, toilet partitions and lockers will be heavier grade for longevity. The overall intent is to provide for a 40 year plus life for the structure.
