Industry: Aquatic Center
Sixmo was selected in 2014 to undertake the design of a new outdoor municipal aquatic facility in Avon, Ohio. The design of the state-of-the-art facility combines both competitive and recreational activities. A flexible competitive pool, meeting the criteria for competition certification by US Swimming, was designed to meet the needs of Avon’s enthusiastic club swimming community. The competitive pool includes eight lanes at 50 meters that can be divided into two 25 meter lengths, or one 25-yard length and a diving well.
The recreational pool includes a 6,000 square foot body of water with a zero depth / beach style entry, an interactive play structure, a vortex feature, lap lanes, and splashdown areas for the three exciting waterslides. A sprayground is separate from, but complimentary, to the leisure pool.
The facility also includes a bathhouse with multi-user men’s and women’s facilities complete with showers and changing areas, family-style changing rooms, administration building, and filter building to support operations at the facility. A parking area, complete with an environmentally friendly permeable paving system, an access drive, walking paths, and a passive park area round out the facility.
