Richland County Recreation Commission

Columbia, SC


Counsilman-Hunsaker worked with SSOE for an aquatic facility master plan study for the Richland County Recreation Commission. The scope of work for the consultant team entailed an assessment of the four existing RCRC outdoor aquatic facilities: Trenholm Park Pool, Eastover Park Pool, Hopkins Park Pool, and St. Andrews Park Pool. This task provided a conditions assessment for the pools and identified deficiencies in the aquatic facilities related to mechanical, electrical, plumbing, accessibility, and functionality. The master plan study included analyzing the current conditions, determining which facilities were either physically or functionally obsolete, and recommending changes for the future.

Counsilman-Hunsaker organized, developed, and launched an online community survey and led community input meetings and outreach events throughout the county.

Counsilman-Hunsaker developed several options for consideration that incorporated various types of indoor and outdoor aquatic centers and features to meet the aquatic needs of the Richland County Community. These summary conclusions were based on the existing conditions assessment, market research, community engagement, and area provider analysis and included options for two existing pools to remain in use, the replacement of two other outdoor pools, and a new indoor aquatic center in northeast Richland County. Capital and operational costs were developed for each of the implementation scenarios.
