The Lake Bluff Park District commissioned Counsilman-Hunsaker and Studio GC to provide an audit of the Blair Park aquatic facility. The aquatic facility consists of two outdoor pools – a 50-meter competitive-style pool (main pool) and a wading pool that has been converted into a sand play area.
The audit included the evaluation of the current condition of the pools (including pool finishes, deck areas, gutter and filtration systems, pool water heating equipment, chemical feed and control systems, and piping and recirculation systems) and identified design or equipment liabilities.
Team members also made determinations about the facility's ability to meet ADA requirements, state health standards, and general safety regulations. The final report detailed the existing condition of the pools and associated equipment and amenities, including life expectancies and recommended short-term and long-term repairs or replacements, along with cost estimates.
