New Pool Cover Installed
New, high-quality and sustainable cover installed over pool
Regis Jesuit High School is one of the only, if not the only, private secondary school in Colorado to have its own
swimming pool facility. Designed by High Country Aquatics and constructed in 1999, the pool itself is in excellent condition and considered a fast pool due to the construction of its wall and gutter system. Our facilities crew employs state-of the-art methods daily to ensure optimal water quality for swimmers and divers.
In June 2019, Regis Jesuit retained the consulting services of Counsilman-Hunsaker, an industry leading aquatics
facility firm to recommend solutions for the replacement of the 21-year old bubble structure, which had reached the end of its usable life as well as improvements of the environmental quality of the swimming pool facility. Counsilman-Hunsaker developed three options that were then vetted by Regis Jesuit leadership, its swimming coach and the Planning & Major Projects committee of the Board of Trustees.
In fall of 2020, a new Sprung fabric membrane structure was installed over the existing pool. This solution provided a high-quality and sustainable cover that:
- Increased deck space
- Vastly improved air circulation and quality
- Significantly reduced operating costs.
We are grateful to the Planning and Major Projects Committee for their work on this initiative and continued stewardship of our campus master plan and are excited to have our Swim & Dive teams use the new structure in 2021 with the start of their seasons.
