Family Aquatics Center

Chanute, Kansas

With their existing pool in need of costly repairs, the City of Chanute, Kansas, opted to invest in a new family aquatic center to serve their rural community. The facility includes zero-depth entry, multiple diving boards, a feature slide, play/spray features in the kids’ area, a lazy river, shade structures, party area, bath house, and coordinating mechanical and equipment structures. In addition to the design, the team took future expansion into account leaving room for potential features, such as additional slides and a sand volleyball court. In 2011, the project was awarded the Innovative Pool Designs and Construction Techniques Silver Award by the Aquatech Society of Pool Building Professionals.

The McCownGordon staff truly worked together as a team. As a result, our pool project was completed on budget and opened on time even with a very aggressive schedule.
