Columbus Recreation & Parks Department Aquatics Study – Civil Phase 1 Support Services – Columbus, Ohio

The Columbus Recreation and Parks Department was working to develop a sustainable aquatics system that serves the residents of Columbus. The aquatics study project helped them make key decisions about the future of the aquatics program which will be completed in two phases. Phase 1 was to conduct an analysis of the existing facilities conditions and locations and prepare summary recommendations for the existing and potential future facilities. Legat Architects was awarded the project and requested STONE to support the following proposed tasks as related to site civil review for the facility grounds:

Project Kickoff
STONE’s Project Manager and Senior Engineer engaged with the project team to establish the project’s communication organization and to establish a calendar with benchmarks, deliverables, and expectations.

Existing Facility Analysis
STONE’s Senior Engineer performed facility analysis for fifteen sites. STONE reviewed the existing documentation for each site and conducted site visits. During the on-site assessment, STONE verified the accuracy of information previously provided in the project’s electronic application platform.

Summary Recommendations
Summary recommendations were prepared for the Columbus Aquatic Center, Outdoor Pools, Spray Parks, and Fountains, and Additional Future Facility/Facilities. STONE prepared the facility assessment documentation from the on-site visits and provided civil engineering input within the recommendations prepared by others.

I can’t thank you enough for everyone’s hard work on this difficult project.  Your team was very diligent and very professional.  Jeff really fought for us at the city planning meeting. We finally got an approval from the city and I couldn’t be happier.  Please keep up the great work.  I will recommend your firm to all my contacts. Hats off to your staff. You should be proud.
