Tualatin Hills Aquatic Center
The Tualatin Hills Aquatic Center features an olympic size 50 meter pool that provides recreational and instructional programs to all ages in this community just outside of Portland, Oregon. The facility is used for a diverse array of events and programs from hosting highly competitive swim meets to scuba and kayak lessons.
Over the years the roof enclosure over the pool area leaked excessively, showed visible signs of corrosion and decay of the exposed metal deck. Furthermore, the foam insulation was saturated from the lack of proper moisture mitigation considerations, which made the building thermally inefficient. If the situation was not remedied soon, things would only get worse and the safety of people using the facility was a primary concern of the owner.
Indoor aquatic center environments are a bit tricky to deal with. After extensive team collaboration with the owner, it was decided that the best short and long term solution was to remove the existing material and replace with a metal deck and roof assembly provided by the IMETCO team. Three critical items were identified and remedied with the solution provided:
The owner is very pleased with the outcome they received with this very attractive looking finished roof, the performance of which is backed up by a long-term warranty commitment for the complete roof assembly. The entire system is covered, from the corrosion resistant acoustical metal deck through and including the metal roof system.
