Joint Indoor Training Tank

RS&H was the Designer of Record for the design-build construction project of a new 25-meter indoor joint water survival training tank, which can accommodate 50 students. The permanent, single-story facility includes all support elements required by the US Navy to use the pool to train military personnel in swimming and water survival, as well to support all military physical fitness programs.

The building is a combination of concrete masonry block walls and structural steel framing, pile foundations with reinforced grade beams, and a slope standing seam metal roof. RS&H designed the facility according to LEED Silver Certification standards, utilizing sustainable principles throughout development, design, and construction in accordance with Executive Order and Energy Policy Act 2000.

Commissioning services included the development of a commissioning plan, precommissioning checklists, and functional performance testing of LEED required systems, including:

  • Pool dehumidification systems
  • HVAC equipment
  • Domestic hot water
  • Lighting controls
