Valdez High School Pool

Valdez, AK

In January of 2015, RSA Engineering commissioned Counsilman-Hunsaker to provide a swimming pool audit of the Valdez High School pool. The audit assisted in identifying items that were substandard or not operating as designed and summarized them with a prioritization of cost.

In response to the audit, RSA Engineering commissioned Counsilman-Hunsaker to design a complete renovation of the existing swimming pool mechanical room. This included new pumps, filters, piping, chemical treatment systems, and UV secondary sanitation systems for both bodies of water. The mechanical room renovation was completed in the fall of 2016.

In 2017, Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained by the City of Valdez to completed renovation on the existing 3,150 sq. ft. lap pool and the 1,700 sq. ft. wading pool. The project consisted of:

• New closed flume waterslide, rock climbing wall, diving board, and timing system
• New mechanical plumbing, including the pool mechanical room and new pool gutters
• Replacement of the existing plaster and tile finish, depth markers, concrete gutters, and main drain grate covers in both the lap pool and wading pool
• Refinishing of the existing swimming pool area and concrete deck with new slip resistant finish
• Installation of a metal grid ceiling and acoustical panels in the natatorium
• Replacement of all light fixtures in natatorium
• Installation of new metal security gate for the existing stairs
