Little Strokes Swim Academy
After outgrowing their rented facility, and in order to expand their offerings, the owners of Little Strokes Swim Academy built a new facility in the Arboretum Office Park in Waunakee, Wisconsin. The new building includes a front office and viewing area, a large pool & deck, mechanical and locker rooms. With over 4,600 sq ft, Little Strokes is the next best thing in town!
Greenfield High School
Ramaker & Associates provided the aquatic design of this new 8-lane competition pool. The Greenfield High School is benefiting from its use of energy saving features, such as VFDs, LED underwater lighting and an automatic thermal blanket storage system.
Hill Farms Swim Club
Ramaker & Associates provided the aquatic engineering for the new 8-lane competition pool and diving hopper for this long-existing swim club.
Poynette High School
As Poynette High School master planned their additions to the school, they decided it was also time to replace their dilapidated swimming pool. A new pool and building mechanical systems were designed to allow better access for maintenance and inspections, improve energy efficiency, and meet all current pool code standards.
The new pool, constructed within the existing building, includes a zero free board gutter system and an automatic thermal cover system to reduce evaporative and heat losses.
The first step in improving energy efficiency was to replace pumps, lights and windows with energy efficient equivalents. Also, an energy recovery unit air handler was installed to recover heat from the exhaust air to warm the air in the pool facility. All these improvements not only help the environment, but help the school with lower maintenance and energy costs.
The services provided included aquatic engineering and MEP design.
Sun Prairie High School
Sun Prairie, Wisconsin
Ramaker & Associates provided the aquatic design for the new 8-lane competition pool. This pool uses innovative features to improve energy efficiency such as a heat recovery chiller and groundwater source loop; salt water chlorine generation; and a thermal blanket system.
Waunakee High School
As the Village of Waunakee continued to grow, it became evident the existing high school swimming pool was not sufficient for their needs. Accordingly, the expansion of their high school included a new 4,430 SF, 8-lane, 25-yard indoor competition pool. This pool was a welcome addition to the Waunakee community as it not only serves high school and local area swim teams, but also serves as a public pool for the entire community. The services provided included aquatic design and engineering.
