University of HoustonAs a part of the university’s strategic goals and capital planning, in 2013 the university retained Counsilman-Hunsaker to perform an Operations Assessment on their existing aquatic system.  The goal of the study was to evaluate the functionality, operational utilization, financial and strategic elements of the aquatic program and aquatic facilities, and benchmark against best practices.  The outcomes were utilized to develop strategies for short, mid and long-term operational plans tied to the university’s Tier One Mission.

  •  Replacement of the gutter, finishes, bulkheads, underwater lights, and main drain covers on the 50-meter competition pool.
  • Replacement of the compressed air sparger system below the diving boards and platforms.
  • Replacement of the timing system and video scoreboards.
