Las Vegas, NV
50 meter Competition Pool
Projects, Las Vegas Business Press, February 15, 2010
UNLV’s McDermott indoor aquatic center will be the aquatic envy of the NCAA Mountain West Conference. The all deep swimming pool specifically designed for competitive aquatic sports features eight (8), 50-meter lanes with a stainless steel movable bulkhead to accommodate all NCAA swimming courses. This design / build project was constructed within the existing building footprint, replacing UNLV's aging aluminum pool, the new pool boasts two (2) one-meter and two (2) three-meter diving boards to both host and train NCAA men's and women's diving. Although the university does not currently have water polo as a NCAA sport, the facility has been designed to accommodate this growth, improving the Rebel's future sporting programs.
