Counsilman-Hunsaker, in association with Ratio Architects, was retained by the Shelbyville Central Schools to conduct a swimming pool audit for the Shelbyville Middle School natatorium and the Shelbyville High School natatorium. The purpose of the audit was to evaluate the existing conditions of each pool, its equipment and amenities including life expectancies and recommended short-term and long-term repairs or replacements. In addition, an opinion of probable construction cost was provided for recommended repairs which will bring the pools up to current public swimming pool regulations. A preliminary concept at each site was developed to help determine the feasibility of having a larger pool to meet the growing needs of the district.
Due to the condition of the lap pool and the cost of repairs, Shelbyville Central Schools decided to move forward with the replacement of the existing main swimming pool at Shelbyville High School and replace it with an eight lane “stretch” competition pool with approximately 6,800 sq. ft. of water surface.
