Nolan Catholic High School is a private Catholic college preparatory school in Fort Worth, Texas. It is one of three Catholic college preparatory schools serving Tarrant County that specialize in providing a faith-filled education to prepare young adults for success in college, university, and beyond.
Counsilman-Hunsaker supported Corgan Architects with an initial study to provide program development and cost estimates for a new natatorium on the Nolan Catholic HS campus. Two options were explored for a competition pool with spectator seating. Aimed at improving athletic facilities that will foster community and spiritual growth through competition and school pride, the school opted to move forward with development of a ten lane, 25-yard competition pool venue.
Counsilman-Hunsaker provided complete aquatic design and engineering services for the project. Construction began in December 2018 for the $32-million expansion project that included the natatorium, enhanced security, an Integrated Design, Engineering, and Art Building, outdoor learning courtyards, and updates to existing classrooms.
Nolan Catholic is now the only private school in Fort Worth with an on-campus natatorium. The multi-purpose aquatic center is open to all students, faculty, and staff, and will also host a wave of health and fitness programs throughout the Diocese.
