In 1994, Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained as lead aquatics designer for a design/bid/build outdoor 50-meter pool.  Counsilman-Hunsaker completed construction documents, but the pool was never built.

In 2001, Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained to examine the pool deck around both the 50-meter pool and the diving pool, and to examine the corrosion on the stainless steel components in the natatorium.

In 2006, the team of Counsilman-Hunsaker, Harvey Cleary, and Tom Green & Company was retained by theUniversityofTexasfor the assessment of separating the current pool mechanical systems into separate systems for two bodies of water: 50-meter pool and diving well. The renovation entailed: mechanically splitting the combined dive pool and 50-meter competition pool into two separate bodies of water; replacing the existing DE filtration system with a high rate sand system; replacing the pumps and heating systems; and providing UV systems for both pools.

In June 2007, the university retained Counsilman-Hunsaker to design the renovation and the project went out to bid. The work was completed in September 2009.

In 2009, Counsilman-Hunsaker was also retained to conduct an analysis on the 50-meter pool and dive well at the Lee andJoeJamailTexasSwimCenterto bring the pool grates up to current code standards with the new Virginia Graeme Baker Act.

In 2009, Counsilman-Hunsaker teamed with the Studio 8 Architects and Flynn Construction design/build team for the outdoor training pool project at the Lee andJoeJamailTexasSwimCenterinAustin,Texas.  The cutting-edge 9,100 sq. ft. training pool includes five 50-meter training lanes and five 25-yard training lanes and a bulkhead.  Counsilman-Hunsaker completed 100% design deliverables for the $3,750,000 pool, but due to lack of funding, the construction is currently on hold.
