Hawks Landing Golf Club
Hawks Landing consists of the 72-par championship golf course, clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, 372 single family lots, and 3 condominium sites.
RAMAKER provided aquatic design and engineering services for their new aquatic facility which includes a multi-use competition/leisure pool. In addition to having 8-lanes for competitive swimming events, the pool has a diving well, a body slide, and a zero depth entry children’s water play area.
Belle Chasse YMCA
Belle Chasse, Louisiana
The project involved engineering services and construction plan development for a new 2,250 square foot multi-use outdoor swimming pool for the local YMCA.
The pool is designed as a single pool basin with one recirculation/water treatment system. Integral to the pool basin are the following areas: Children's Wading Pool with zero depth entrance, Leisure Pool with a deck mounted spiral slide, a Shallow Water Tanning Ledge and 4-lane Lap Pool.
The water surface level of the Lap Pool is elevated 12 inches above the Leisure Pool. Water flows from the Lap Pool to the Leisure Pool over a "vanishing edge".
Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
Aimed for teens and pre-teens, this space-efficient 5,700 square foot aquatic center features a dual body slide tower and activity pool. The 3-lane, 50-foot long lap pool serves as a plunge pool for the 16-foot high body slides.
Younger children enjoy the zero-depth entry wading pool with turtle-themed kiddie slide, water umbrella, water funnels, pipe falls, and fan sprays. A ramp connects the wading pool to the activity pool, making it handicap accessible.
Young Leaders Academy Charter School
Located at the Northside YMCA, the YLA charter school is dedicated to developing the leadership skills of every student who enrolls in the program.
The charmingly themed 9,000 square foot aquatic facility at the YLA charter school is the center of fun activities for youth of all ages! Older children enjoy the basketball hoops in the activity pool, while younger children splash and play in the wading pool area. It also features a plunge pool with a 16-foot waterslide, lap pool, and a spa.
The pool was designed to fit entirely within the basin of the existing lap pool to accommodate existing structural conditions. To increase efficiency, all pool areas are combined, sharing one filtration system and allowing entrance to any pool through the zero-depth entry.
This 5,000 square foot aquatic center features a combined activity and lap pool, a zero-depth entry wading pool, and a current channel. The mix of activities appeals to patrons of all ages and will provide exercise and therapy uses, as well as entertainment.
New Orleans Country Club
New Orleans, Louisiana
This project includes a new pool addition with fountain and deck jets. The country club has offered its members a perfectly maintained golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, dining room, and clubhouse for socializing for nearly 100 years.
Maple Bluff Country Club
The project consisted of the construction of a new eight lane, 25 yard competition swimming pool with an attached diving well and a separate wading pool. The new pools were constructed to replace the existing swimming and wading pools.
The new swimming pool ranges in depth from 4’-0” to 5’-0” for the lap lanes. A 12’-6” diving well is adjacent to the swimming pool. The swimming pool and diving well share the same filtration and water treatment equipment. There are two 1M diving boards and basketball hoops. A flush type gutter system was incorporated into the top of the pool wall. The wading pool has interactive features appropriate for young children along with a beach entry for ADA access. This project also included a unique feature — a below-grade equipment room hidden by landscaping for no visual impact to the golf course.
Community Center at Christwood
The Christwood Retirement Community has a 23,000-square-foot Wellness Center, where Christwood residents can enjoy a 25-yard, six-lane indoor pool. The Community Center at Christwood, which also includes an exercise room, aerobic studio, day spa, coffee bar and art studio, offers memberships to anyone ages 55 years and older.
RAMAKER performed aquatic engineering services and construction plan development for a new 6-lane indoor swimming pool for the Community Center.
Becker Community Center
The 44,000 square foot building contains a library, meeting rooms, community room/basketball/volleyball, rock climbing wall, observation deck to view swimmers and the necessary changing rooms including a family changing room with toilet facilities.
The aquatics center features a 3,825 square foot pool, a 15-person whirlpool, and sauna. A zero-depth area gives beach-like access to small children, elderly and physically-challenged swimmers. For the kids' enjoyment, there are three levitation nozzles providing bubbles to float in; a mushroom-shaped fountain creates a water curtain to play in; and a 148 foot waterslide provides three hairpin turns before entering the plunge pool. Other activities include swimming lanes, water basketball and volleyball, and water aerobics.
Bill Taunton Stadium
RAMAKER provided design services for a multi-phase project that included grading and drainage improvements to the field, construction of a new 980-seat grandstand and construction of a viewing plaza and new concession/bathroom building. We worked closely with the Booster association to ensure the facility met both current and future needs. Phase II included the majority of the work, which was the design and construction of the new, covered grandstand, which has a combination of individual stadium seats as well as bleacher seating and a fully accessible viewing plaza. Phase III included the design and construction of a 1,200 square foot concession and bathroom building.
