ELS Architecture and Urban Design is designing the new home for the University of California, Berkeley’s Intercollegiate Aquatic Sports, a state-of-the-art aquatics facility aimed at providing additional training space for intercollegiate athletes. Currently, the university only has one aquatic venue, which student athletes share with recreational swimmers from the university and community. The new facility will be used solely by Cal’s intercollegiate aquatics teams for athletic training.
Consisting of three single-level buildings surrounded a 50M stretch pool, the new Aquatic Center features a two-centerline dive tower and adjacent 1M and 3M springboard dive platforms, a warm water spa for divers, locker rooms and a multi-purpose and special events room. The project is targeting LEED Silver. Construction is slated to be complete in August 2016.
