  • Denison Rec and Athletic Ctr Pool from Corner Stands

    This is a truly versatile facility, designed not only as a state-of-the art competition venue but also to house physical education and recreational use, thanks largely to the moveable floor and bulkhead. The moveable pool bottom allows for faster, deep water during competitions, while allowing for the shallow water thats appropriate for physical education and recreational exercise.

  • Denison Rec and Athletic Ctr Pool from Stands

    Theming for the facility revolves around Denisons athletic mascot, Big Red, as well as the school colors of red and white. In addition, the design team sought to create high-volume, light-filled spaces that visitors and spectators will find welcoming. As an example, the second-floor main meeting room features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the entire aquatic area. The center was built to LEED specification, with efficient lighting, reduced water flow devices and HVAC systems designed to reduce energy consumption. The University intends to pursue Silver certification.

    Say the designers: Until the completion of the new Trumbull Aquatics Center, swimming and diving competitions were the only conference events Denison could not host on campus. The new Trumbull Aquatics Center provides the opportunity to host major meets, revamps the visitor experience, and provides a visible single point of entry that enhances security and oversight.

As the second-most-winning program in its division, Denison University’s swimming program needed a facility of similar caliber. Instead, it had an aging pool more suited to a high school. With the new Trumbull Aquatics Center, the school’s athletes now have a training edge over peers from other institutions, many of which don’t have a long-course aquatic facility. A 50-meter-by-25-yard pool features a moveable bulkhead and moveable floor. Athletes can train on dry land with 1- and 3-meter boards equipped with overhead spotting rigs. With the provided video-taping equipment, the coaching staff can film underwater. The cameras come with delayed playback at both boards.
