The Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the nation's top research universities, distinguished by its commitment to improving the human condition through advanced science and technology.

Georgia Tech's campus occupies 400 acres in the heart of the City of Atlanta where, in 1996, the summer Olympic swimming and diving competitions were performed at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center. The world-class outdoor freestanding venue designed by Counsilman-Hunsaker featured:

  • Ten lane 50-meter by 25-yard competition pool with two bulkheads and a moveable floor
  • Separate diving well with diving tower with 1, 3, 5, 7½, and 10-meter diving

Project Amenities

In 2004, Counsilman-Hunsaker was once again retained and served as the aquatic planning and design consultant on a team that completed design modifications, thus converting the freestanding shelter into an indoor award-winning natatorium. As an added challenge, the existing roof structure needed to be maintained as an ongoing, long-term, solar energy research project.

The design team also provided design services for an aquatic expansion that included a recreation pool with a current channel, waterslide, lap lanes, vortex, and underwater benches. A warm water spa was also constructed adjacent to the recreation pool.

Moreover, a six-court gymnasium, fitness center, racquetball courts, climbing wall, offices, locker rooms, and a three-level parking deck were built.
