The Campus Recreation Center is open to all Rhode Island College (RIC) students. Offering state-of-the-art facilities including a 10,000 sq. ft indoor heated swimming pool, a 35,000 sq. ft. field house equipped with a five-lane 1/10 mile indoor track, three multipurpose courts, and a fitness center with accessibility to cardiovascular and weight training equipment.
In 2019, Counsilman-Hunsaker conducted a site visit to assess the conditions of the existing indoor five-lane, 25-yard "L" shaped swimming pool located in the Study Recreation Center. The assessment focused on the pool interior finishes and the water loss of approximately 2,500 gallons per day.
Various options were recommended for refinishing the pool shell along with associated costs, allowing RIC to evalute and to determine the preferred approach based on the project budget, renovation timeline, and long-term maintenance. It was also recommended that the main drains and cast iron suction pipe below grade be replaced between the pool and the surge tank. In addition to the opinion of costs, a 25-year life cycle cost was also provided with the costs for repairs.
In 2020, a partial renovation was completed, which included new piping and main drain sumps, a new sight sump, repair of the pool shell interior, and replacement of the painted finish and concrete deck with an all-tile pool shell interior and ceramic tile deck finish.
