Greensburg Pool

Civic Case Study
City officials decided to relocate their pool facilities to provide updated amenities to citizens after the city of Greensburg closed their 72 year-old leaking pool. The city chose a large vacant lot, once the site of the city’s hospital, which was destroyed in 2007 by a EF5 tornado, and hired the design-build team of McCownGordon and Sullivan Palmer Architects to complete the $2.2 Million project. Working collaboratively, the team developed a design that incorporated all of the city’s needs.

 The facility includes zero-depth entry, a double loop slide, lap pool, bath house, mechanical pump rooms, ticket office and concessions. Split face masonry construction was used with integral color block for the pool house.

To make the area a multi-faceted amenity, the site leaves space for the city to put a future playground. The team integrated seamlessly during the design-build process to provide the best overall value for the City of Greensburg. With a tight budget and fast-track schedule, an aggressive and proactive approach was required to successfully complete the facility in the summer of 2015.
