WTI was hired to complete the final design, assist with the construction/bid documents, and construction administration of the Brighton Oasis Family Aquatic Park. A concept design and programming had previously been completed for the new facility. Doug Whiteaker of WTI worked closely with the park and recreation staff in the creation of the current plan when he was with a different firm. Therefore, our understanding of the project is unique; we are very familiar with the original design intent and the history behind the decisions that were made in 2003. The aquatic facility was constructed in three phases, including the leisure pool phase and the lazy river phase. The final phase will be an indoor competitive pool. The project is intended to be designed and constructed to achieve LEED Silver certification.
- An initial public meeting was held to gather input from the community, which was used in conjunction with the design committee to develop schematic designs.
