Burkburnett, TX – StudyBurkburnett, TX
The City of Burkburnett was seeking a consultant to provide a conceptual design and feasibility analysis for a new outdoor family aquatic facility and related site improvements. The team of Counsilman-Hunsaker and Kimley-Horn and Associates were retained to develop concepts for the city by combining creative water play areas for various age groups in a safe, friendly atmosphere to meet the needs for Burkburnett and the surrounding communities. The report provided space program analysis and project costs for three conceptual options detailing site-specific construction estimates with line item costs for each proposed space. Along with each concept, the team provided a revenue and expense analysis to give a complete picture of what the facility would cost to build and operate.

As a result of the study, in July 2013 the city decided to move forward with the design of a new outdoor aquatic facility. The $4.4 million Boomtown Bay Family Aquatic Center opened in June 2015 complete with an 11,000 sq. ft. water surface, which includes a 2,500 sq. ft. lap pool and an 8,000 sq. ft. leisure pool.
After completing design services for the aquatic center, the city retained the team of Counsilman-Hunsaker and Sports Facilities Management to provide Pre-Opening Aquatic Operation Services.
