Athletics and Recreation
Developed as a partnership between Urbana School District 116 and the Urbana Park District, IGW designed the new Urbana Indoor Aquatic Center. The 24,500 square foot facility provides physical education opportunities for school children of all ages, a practice and competition venue for the high school swim teams and serves the recreational needs of the general Urbana, Illinois population.
The project included a competition pool with 24 yard and 25 meter swimming lanes, a deep diving well, and separate leisure pool with zero-depth entry offering shallow water for children and disabled users. Along with the pools, a vestibule entry, staff offices, family changing room, locker facilities and equipment room complete the first floor. A spectator mezzanine provides views to both pools from retractable bleachers.
