Canal Aquatics - An Accessible and Green Facility

A Fully Accessible Facility
The facility will be fully accessible and exceed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.

Advanced Green Facility Design
The proposed facility design is based on the state-of-the-art monolithic dome, which is the most sustainable structure possible. This will facilitate meeting our goal of being Gold LEED Certified by the US Green Building Council. Some facts about the design:

  • It will save at least fifty percent on heating and cooling costs compared to a comparable conventional building

  • It will require the smallest surface area and employ the fewest materials to enclose the space – in the range of 50% to 75% less to cover the same space utilized by a 'square' conventional building

  • The use of local aggregate and concrete easily meets the LEED criteria for using regional materials in LEED certification.

  • We are considering alternative energy sources including solar, geothermal, and wind applications.  Plus, we hope to recycle the gray water.
