University of Houston Aquatic Facilities Assessment

Houston, Texas

The University of Houston houses two aquatic facilities on campus. The first and older of the two facilities, Melcher Pool is run by the Human Development and Performance Department and consists of a 6-lane 25-yard lap pool and separate diving well. The second and newer having opened in the early 2000s is the Student Recreation & Wellness Center which houses an indoor 70M x 25Y stretch with 3 bulkheads, springboards and diving tower, indoor hot tub, indoor dry sauna, outdoor leisure pool and outdoor hot tub.

B*K was tasked with assisting Aquatic Excellence in the assessment of both aquatic facilities. This work consisted of looking at day to day operational aspects and facility components and determining if they were in line with standards set forth by governing bodies and by best practices.
