An update from Program Manager: Terry Zinger
The long awaited addition of state-of-the-art, competitive swimming pool complexes at Adolfo Camarillo and Hueneme High Schools is underway and scheduled for completion and turn-over in time for practice and competition for the 2014 season.
Requests for submission of qualifications by potential builders went out on November 18 and are being received not later than today, December 6. The prequalification process is being used to ensure that contractors that are allowed to propose to construct the two complexes, which will be awarded as a single project, have the resources, capabilities and substantial experience in aquatic facilities construction that will allow them to truly contribute to the success and quality of the project. When a list of prequalified firms is identified, a Request for Proposals will be issued to those firms for the construction of the two complexes. The Request for Proposals will be issued in early January, 2013 and proposals will be accepted in early February.
It is expected that a contract will be awarded to the successful firm before the end of February and that construction will begin in the field in late March or early April. Completion is projected to occur not later than the end of October, 2013. The complexes will be turned over to Operations in plenty of time to be ready for the start of swim practice for the 2014 Season.
Both facilities feature:
• 25 yard, heated, competition pools, with a total surface area of 8,556 sq ft
• 13 – 25 yard swim lanes
• Water polo courses for high school and other competitive swimming events, can be configured into 2 simultaneous practice courses
• 8 lane timing system and scoreboard
• LED Underwater lights
• 2 – 1 meter diving boards
• Multi-depth pool ranging from 3’-6” to 12′-6″, 7′ depth for water polo play
• ADA Access with two points of entry via stairs and self operable ADA lift
• Approximately 10,000 sf deck area
• 3,800 sqft – Bathhouse to include boys and girls restroom/lockers and indoor and outdoor showers, pool equipment storage room, coaches office, staff toilet, and pool mechanical room.
There is little doubt that both campuses will be proud of aquatic complexes that will be second to none in the District.
