American Institute of Architects 2017 Merit Award-Winning Project
Croy Engineering was retained by the City of Loretto, Tennessee to manage the design and construction of a new municipal pool complex that was identified in the 2014 City Park and Recreation Master Plan also performed by Croy. The project represented the first major renovation to the park in many years, and was the largest capital project undertaken by the City in over 20 years.
Croy assisted the City in successfully procuring additional grant monies for the project through the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) that increased the project budget two-fold. With a total project budget of $1.1 million, Croy managed a design team of architects, engineers, and pool specialists to deliver a 4,500 s.f. state of the art swimming pool and bathhouse that not only meets the needs of the City, but adheres to the sustainability goals and conditions of the TDEC grant monies. Sustainable Construction features are included below. The project was brought in on budget, and has been hailed by TDEC director Bob Martineau as “one of the most energy-efficient and sustainable pool operations in the southeast.”
The North Alabama Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) recently awarded the 2017 Merit Award to the Loretto City Pool Complex pool house.
“We’ve always been super proud of this design and are excited others notice it as well,” Jesse Turner, Mayor of Loretto, said about the project. ”Great job by Matheny Goldmon (the Architect) and Croy Engineering.”
