Emery County struggled for many years to maintain an aging and antiquated indoor pool facility. In 2007 the Emery County Commission asked NWLA to assist them in evaluating various replacement options. The selected plans led to funding by the “Community Impact Board”. This beautiful $6,000,000.00 pool complex consists of both an indoor competition/lap pool and an outdoor family recreation pool. The client’s desire to bring the outdoors into the indoor pool led to the use of a full height glass curtain wall on two sides of the indoor facility. The fi nished project opened in 2009 and consists of a 6-lane 25 yard indoor lap pool, and an outdoor family leisure pool with zero depth entry, big toy feature, current channel and a large slide. Locker and toilet facilities accommodate both indoor and outdoor patrons. A stateof- the-art “Myrtha” pool structure was used for both pool facilities. The outdoor family pool has a cushioned pool floor. This project is the recipient of the 2009 AIA Honor Award presented by the American Institute of Architects, Utah Chapter.
