The Cheyenne Aquatic Center renovation and addition project was an opportunity to give the community a much-needed improvement to their only year-round aquatics facility, originally built in 1976. The project included a renovation to the existing dated Natatorium building, as well as the addition of a new fully enclosed leisure pool. The 16,000-sf renovation included new glazing, demolition of the existing tot pool and slide, a complete renovation of locker rooms and support spaces, mechanical replacement and the addition of a new pool dehumidification unit.
The addition of a new 7,400-sf natatorium included a leisure pool with a zero-depth entry area, play structure, lazy river and additional lap lanes, as well as additional storage space and supporting mechanical room. The facility also includes a new slide tower complete with two indoor/outdoor slide flumes. The building consists of structural Concrete Masonry Unit (CMU) walls and steel framing/roof deck on standard foundations, an EPDM synthetic rubber roof, CMU and metal panel exterior walls with curtain wall, translucent insulated panels and an aluminum-framed storefront.
