CSU - California Maritime Academy PE, Athletics and Aquatics Center

California State University California Maritime Academy PE, Athletics and Aquatics Center
When they are not on their training cruises, the Maritime cadets will enjoy the use of this remarkable new pool and facility, which will also distinguish the campus entrance with its translucent channel glass skin.

Working for a unique institution in the California State University System, SportsPLAN Studio and WRNS Studio completed the design of a new PE, Athletics and Aquatics Center in 2014.

The facility provides recreational and instruction space for the Cal Maritime cadets and is the new home for Keelhauler Athletics. The 50-meter pool is designed to be enclosed in the future, and it will host competitive swimming and water polo matches. With its specially-designed tower and wave generating features, the pool also accommodates water survival and rescue training and certification.

SportsPLAN Studio guided the functional planning and designed spectator grandstands for the Event Gym and the pool. We also produced plans for the various locker rooms, sports medicine center, two Gymnasia, a fitness center and a varsity strength training center.
