|Coral Springs Aquatic Complex
Owner: City of Coral Springs
Project Location: Coral Springs, FL
In 1995, the City of Coral Springs selected Recreational Design and Construction to design-build a state-of-the-art aquatic center beginning with a 25-meter by 25-yard Myrtha pool system-the first prefabricated stainless steel swimming pool system ever installed in the U.S. Adhering to the City's extremely tight construction schedule helped earn RDC the nickname of the "On Time and Under Budget" design-build firm from City officials.
Several years later, RDC was contracted by the City to modify the Center's dive well and renovate the 50-meter pool using the latest Myrtha RenovAction System.
In 2002, RDC responded to a Design-Build competition and was selected to design and construct a state-of-the-art, 36-ft. x 65-ft. learn-to-swim pool at the Coral Springs Aquatic Center. This newest addition was made possible by a Swim Central Grant from the Broward County "Safe Parks and Land Preservation" bond issue. It is the first Myrtha Ceramic2 pool in Florida and the first in the nation to incorporate a "soft walk" floor.
Soft walk floors are specially fabricated, flexible pool floors that provide a more comfortable surface on which swim participants can play and learn. RDC was instrumental in guiding the City through the grant application process. The addition of the Teaching Pool brings the total number of pools at this facility to four.
