Smith College – Dalton Pool (Audit)

Northampton, MA

To determine what it would need in order to continue service for another 10 years, Smith College retained Gund Partnership and Counsilman-Hunsaker to assess the physical condition of the existing Dalton Pool located in the Ainsworth Gym. The study looked at 1) the pool, including all its mechanical and electrical systems; 2) the mechanical and electrical systems in the Ainsworth Gym, especially as they relate to the pool; and 3) the general condition of the building envelope. The consultant team developed a detailed program for a new aquatics center by seeking the vision of interested aquatics and athletics staff, reviewed scheduling data, and compiled benchmark data of relevant peer and aspirational institutions to inform the programming process.
