Project: Bronx Community College Pool

Client: Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY)

Size: 36x75 feet

A pool that’s accessible to all

H2M is currently performing a pool rehabilitation for DASNY at Alumni Gym at Bronx Community College (formerly NYU). Alumni Gym, originally constructed in 1931, was modified in 1947 to convert an existing basketball floor into a 36 x 75 foot swimming pool, with facilities for racing, high and low diving, and water polo. The pool was again renovated in the 1980s with new equipment and replacement of the original pool tiles.

The current project consists of all new pool equipment, as well as health department and ADA code upgrades, including but not limited to: a new pool filtration and water treatment system; pool heater; replacement of the electrical system and pool piping; drainage; surge tank; pool wall tile; pool signage; pool wall and floor repairs; gutter system; pool area lighting and ventilation system; and pool alarm.

The project also features an ADA lift and the creation of an accessible route from the building’s exterior to the pool, as well as an ADA-compliant locker and shower room.
