Featured Project

Greensboro Aquatic Center 4th Pool – Greensboro, NC

Shelco returned to the Greensboro Aquatic Center to construct their fourth pool. This 22,000 SF addition made the Greensboro Aquatic Center the largest aquatic center in the United States! The fourth pool will accommodate either 19 short lanes (25 meters) or 8 long lanes (50 meters) and holds 495,217 gallons of water. This unique project was awarded the Construction Professional Network (CPN) Star Award.

About Aquatics

Shelco has successfully constructed several aquatic centers for both public and private entities. Indoor aquatic centers can be especially challenging due to the amount of humidity inside the structure as well as the water chemistry.
