Adams 12 Five Star Schools Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center

Thornton, Colorado

The state-of-the-art Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center provides a much needed area for area swim teams, water polo and underwater hockey to train and compete.  The 25-yard by 50 meter Olympic sized competition pool has two bulkheads allowing the pool to be partitioned into individual areas to accommodate multiple teams, diving, and other activities at one time.

The pool is heated through a solar technology; a pool cover was also installed to help keep heat in while not in use.  Other energy efficient features in the pool area included, insulated skylight in the natatorium, and UV light and regenerative media filtration.
