Trumbull Aquatic Center in Mitchell Athletic Center

The high level of student participation in various levels of athletics led Denison University leaders to engage Hastings+Chivetta for the renovation and expansion of the school’s existing athletic facilities.  Part of this renovation and expansion was the addition of a new 50-meter competition pool with separate diving tank. The new pool is four times larger than the previous pool, which was converted to a fitness center.

The competition pool includes 9 50-meter lanes, a moveable floor and moveable bulkhead to allow for reconfiguration for various activities.  Balcony seating accommodates 1,000 spectators.  There are two 3-meter boards and two 1-meter boards at the diving well as well as a spa. The facility also includes locker rooms, athletic training suite, athletic offices and meeting rooms.

The project earned LEED Gold certification.
