U.S. Naval Academy – LeJuene Hall Pool – AuditAnnapolis, MD
In December 2008, the United States Naval Academy (USNA) retained Counsilman-Hunsaker and Woods Peacock to perform an aquatic assessment for the swimming pools located in the USNA LeJeune Hall. The natatorium houses a 50-meter pool and a dive pool. The purpose of the aquatic audit was twofold: to evaluate the current dive pool that provides platform and springboard diving to ensure it met the NCAA dimensional requirements and to identify repairs/renovations necessary for the swimming pools and the pool mechanical system. An opinion of probable construction cost was provided for recommended repairs to bring the pools up to current industry standards. In addition, the audit identified items for future consideration.

In 2010, Counsilman-Hunsaker was also retained by Culpeper Veterans Associates to prepare construction documents for a renovation of the 50-meter pool, dive pool, and mechanical systems located at Lejeune Hall. This renovation included separating the combined recirculation system into two separate and distinct recirculation systems, the addition of new concrete and tile perimeter gutter systems, scoreboard and in-deck timing system, ceramic tile pool and deck finish, custom starting blocks, a custom fiberglass bulkhead, and an ADA accessible pool lift. Renovations in the mechanical room included a regenerative media filtration system, ultraviolet light dechloramination and disinfection system, variable frequency drives, and state-of-the-art water chemistry control systems.
