01 Project Overview
The Belleville Natatorium provides students with a competition pool that maximizes speed.

Shortly after Belleville High School opened its new natatorium, the records began to fall. The client and students wanted a fast pool, and Fanning Howey delivered with an approach that uses gutter design, gutter capacity and enhanced lane markers to maximize speed. The natatorium’s state-of-the-art starting blocks and timing system allows the swim coach to give instant feedback regarding swimmers’ reaction times. A video display is also capable of providing instantaneous feedback on diving form. In one of the first meets in the new pool, a Belleville swim team member broke a 27-year-old school record.
