Frisco ISD Natatorium

Project Type:
Competition, Education and Training
Frisco, Texas

It was important to the Frisco Independent School District to create an identity for its sports facilities and to ensure that the look of the Frisco ISD Natatorium fit in with the district’s other athletic venues. Special attention was given during the design phase to the consistency of colors and materials with the school district’s football stadium, which neighbors the site.

The 38,000-square-foot natatorium features a 50-meter-by-25-yard, Olympic-sized pool with eight lanes, two moveable bulkheads, two 1-meter diving boards and one 3-meter diving board. The pool was carefully engineered to provide the fastest possible competitive environment, and the bleachers were carefully designed to separate spectators and competitors. Large windows located high on the north-facing wall provide soft, natural light, minimizing glare on the pool water.

While the facility is owned and operated by the school district, community use is critical to help pay operating costs. This added a requirement for a shallow end where water aerobics and swim lessons can be offered. WTI was proud to work with the design team and Frisco ISD to produce a superior aquatic training and competition venue that has been used to its full extent. Additionally, the natatorium is constantly full with local swimmers and swimmers attending meets who enjoy the superior air and water quality.
