About the Topic:   Assessment, Renewals and Design of New and Existing Natatoriums

Buildings that house swimming pools create conditions that require special design considerations to produce durable assemblies. We look at both renewals of existing buildings where poor performance and premature degradation have required replacement of assembly components, and the design of new natatoriums with improved systems to address these aggressive atmospheres.
