Phillips Aquatics Center

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Driven by the need for a Learn to Swim program for Minneapolis residents, The Phillips Aquatics Center provides a new warmer water, shallow, accessible pool for the Learn to Swim program, connected to a renovated 6-lane competition pool for other program activities. Both pools share locker rooms, family changing rooms, and other amenities. New building systems meet MN B3 Sustainability Guidelines and the pool systems utilize the latest energy conservation features. The addition and remodeling were completed in 2018, while keeping the existing community center in full operation.

The project includes a full renovation of the existing six-lane pool, restoration of the upper-level spectating area and updates to the existing locker room. The expansion will house a community room and a zero-depth entry, warm-water, four-lane teaching pool, along with dedicated locker rooms and rest rooms.
