“A natatorium is one of the most notoriously difficult facilities to design because there are so many critical considerations.”
Natatorium design is a complex business, with serious energy, comfort, health, and safety considerations. Heat, humidity, and chemicals in pools combine to create harsh environments that are hard on buildings and hard on equipment.
Providing a safe, healthy, and comfortable indoor pool environment while minimizing operating costs is no simple task. The building, HVAC system, and all equipment must perform reliably, day in and day out, with minimum energy consumption, no matter the ambient temperatures or pool activity level.
Seresco’s Natatorium Design Guide is a must-read for indoor pool engineers, contractors, and owners, offering a deep dive into all the key considerations for designing a successful facility, with particular attention paid to chloramine control and air distribution.
