Millard North High SchoolOmaha, NE
The swimming pool at Millard North High School was constructed in 1980 and was showing signs of age and physical obsolescence. In order for the school to continue its long history of aquatic programming, the facility required a reinvestment to keep current with industry programming and operational requirements.
In October 2013, Counsilman-Hunsaker performed an assessment of the existing conditions of the pool related to compliance with current health codes and industry standards. An examination of the overall condition of the pool and supporting systems included recirculation, filtration, and sanitation systems. The final report detailed the existing condition of the pool and its equipment, including life expectancies, and recommended short-term and long-term repairs or replacements, including cost estimates. It was recommended from a longevity and value standpoint that total replacement be strongly considered.

After a thorough investigation of the existing facility and review with the school district, it was determined that repairing the existing pool would not serve as a cost effective method to achieve the desired programming goals for the facility. The school district chose to replace the existing center with a new 3,500 sq. ft., six lane, 25-yard pool for the swim and dive team to use for competition events.
