BUILDING BLOCKS

The much anticipated third and final
phase of Sonora High School's construction project ended with the creation of
a new aquatic center featuring a 25-by30-yard outdoor community pool.
CHALLENGE: In 2012, the Sonora
community voted for a $23 million
bond to retrofit the school's facilities.
The project began with renovation
of the humanities building in 2014,
followed by the cafeteria and football
field in 2015. For the final phase, the
school upgraded the aquatic center's
non-ventilated, cinder block locker
room and replaced a shallow, leaky
pool that had only six lanes and
lacked gutter cleaners.
"There were trees next to the pool
that dropped leaves into the water,"
says Patrick Chabot, superintendent
of Sonora Union High School District.
"It clogged the gutters and burned out
the motors."
Architects faced a challenge in moving the new pool and aquatic center
closer to the center of campus. Years
earlier, the ground became unstable
when the school straightened a nearby
creek. "It was pretty difficult to put anything there," says Chabot.

eled out by driving metal piles into the
bedrock. The locker room now has hot
water, blow dryers, improved lighting
and well-ventilated windows.
The deep end of the new, 11-lane
pool drops to 7 feet. One of its entry
sections begins above water and gradually descends to a depth of 4 feet so
younger children and seniors can get
into the pool easily. "It's almost like

you're at the beach, walking into the
water," says Chabot.
COMPLETION: August 2017
COST: $23 million ($6 million for pool
and aquatic center)
