Queens College – Fitzgerald Gymnasium Pool (Audit)

Queens, NY


The Fitzgerald Gymnasium at Queens College is a three-story 175,500 sq. ft. structure built in 1957. This facility is used for physical education, exercise science education, recreation and NCAA Division II competitive sports.

Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained to audit the existing pool and respective mechanical systems. The team provided an opinion of probable cost not only for deficient items needing repair and/or replacement, but also options for future aquatic considerations that will affect the aquatics program for the next 50 years. The current pool is one of the most used venues in the building, from varsity and recreational swimming to community use and summer camps. The college representatives were concerned with issues relating to intended uses and scheduling; physical and technical parameters of length, width, and depth; deck space; room volume; gutter and filtration systems; temperature and humidity control; and lighting and glare control. Several layouts and cost options were studied, striving to find the best balance between programming, revenue generation, first costs and maintenance expenses, and space allocations. Serious discussion centered on the merits of renovating the existing pool verses building a new pool.
