Rapid City, City ofRapid City, SD
The City of Rapid City, South Dakota, retained the team of Fennel Design and Counsilman-Hunsaker to assess their existing aquatic facility at Horace Mann Park and to provide options for renovation or replacement of the existing 50-meter pool which had reached physical and functional obsolescence. The study also provided options for the development of an outdoor pool at Roosevelt Park. The team developed concepts and provided a revenue and expense analysis, construction costs, project costs, attendance, and operating revenue to give a complete picture of what each facility would cost to build and operate.
