Glendale High School Aquatic Center

Client: Glendale Unified School District
Project Location: Glendale, CA
Project Size: 38m x 25 yd Pool; 5,000 SF Support Building
Completion Date: April 2021

Built to last, Glendale High School’s new Aquatic Center features a pool constructed with Myrtha® Technology consisting of stainless-steel modular panels that are hot sealed with PVC for waterproofing and durability. The 38-meter x 25-yard pool has a shallow end to accommodate students learning to swim and accessible entrance, a rim-flow style continuous gutter, and a pool cover with reels. Students and athletes will be relieved to no longer have to attend practices off-campus and be able to compete in their very own pool. The project site also includes two buildings which house locker rooms, storage, a concession stand, and restrooms.

Prior to tBP’s contracting with the District, the project had faced several unfortunate shortcomings resulting in delays. Picking up where a previous design firm left off, tBP performed extensive double checks on codes and requirements as well as incorporated additional design changes to stay within budget.
