SUNY Geneseo Merrit Athletic Center Alumni Pool Structural Repair
SUNY Geneseo has experienced leaking and areas of concrete damage at the pool and an adjacent tunnel which have resulted in the emptying of the pool for safety reasons.
Foit-Albert Associates worked with SUNY Geneseo to address a structural deficiency in the existing Merritt Pool that had rendered the pool unusable to their active competitive swimming program and student services. Concurrently, the University was undertaking a pool equipment upgrade that potentially required access to an unused view corridor under the pool deck that was the subject of some of the structural issues.
The pool mechanical equipment was ultimately sited in an unused squash court over existing equip0ment space. Though conveniently located, the squash court lacked the available loading capacity for water filled pool equipment. A new intermediate floor level was added to the squash court to accommodate additional equipment and exiting.
