Alcorn State University commissioned WBA Architecture and Counsilman-Hunsaker to provide a swimming pool assessment and feasibility study for the Whitney Complex Indoor Swimming Pool.
The first phase of the study was to perform a conditions assessment of the swimming pool. The pool had not been in use for approximately ten years prior to a 2015 renovation. The purpose of the swimming pool assessment phase of the study was to identify items that are substandard in the pools, identify items not to current industry swimming pool design standards, or equipment not operating as designed, and to assist in defining a course of action regarding the future of the aquatic facility.
After the assessment was completed, three options were developed that included a reuse of the existing pool and two options for construction of a new indoor swimming pool with enhanced functionality and aquatic programming opportunities.
