Dillon Family Aquatics Center at the Fremont Family YMCAFremont, NE
Weitz was selected as construction manager to replace the Fremont Family YMCA’s original instructional pool (installed in 1969) and the 25-meter lap pool (built in 1994) with a state-of-the-art aquatics center that features the largest pool ever built at a YMCA in the United States.
The Fremont Family YMCA chose a Myrtha competition pool for its new aquatics center. At 11,204 square feet, the pool includes six, 50-meter swim lanes and 12, 25-meter lanes with a 12-foot diving well. Its shallowest point is 3 feet 6 inches to accommodate youth swimming lessons, and there is a splash pad for younger children. Total capacity of the pool is 421 swimmers, and the aquatics center has a seating capacity of 386 people.
The 29,745-square-foot addition made the Fremont Family YMCA the largest in the United States at the time of completion.
