Prospect High School Natatorium

Mt. Prospect, Illinois

The new, mixed-use 27,000 square-foot natatorium at Prospect High School responds to the needs of a natatorium for the school and its surrounding community. One of the key features of the pool is an ADA ramp that extends the entire length of the pool and curves in to the shallow section. The mezzanine will seat 500 visitors and provide a concession stand; a lower area will include bathrooms, locker rooms, storage areas and offices for coaches. In addition to the new pool and building addition, Pepper gave the school and entirely new parking lot with a new circle drive and front entrance to accommodate the pool needs. This entrance was adjacent to where we needed to tear out and install a new sidewalk, landscaping and seating which required careful coordination and protection.
