The new 23,000 square foot $8.5 million aquatic center addition and renovation in Belton, MO included three different pools: a full-sized competition pool, a recreation pool and a “lazy river”. In addition, the center also underwent major renovations throughout providing upgraded offices, workout areas and new locker areas. As the MEP engineer BGR Consulting Engineers performed initial site investigations to determine the amount of demolition required and the extent of materials that could be salvaged. Like all renovations, the design team had to work with the contractors to keep on schedule when unforeseen conditions were discovered.
