EducationEnsworth High School Natatorium

Nashville, Tennessee New Construction Size: 50,000 SF Cost: $18.8M Completed: 2012

Ensworth High School's natatorium, a peer to some of the finest collegiate aquatic centers in the country, features a 50-meter competition pool with four one-meter diving springboards, a smaller teaching pool, two large unusually large state-of-the-art scoreboards, locker rooms, concessions, a main lobby, a student lobby, and a mezzanine area for spectator seating with over 300 seats. As a result of the site's location in a flood plain, the facility sits on concrete columns so that floodwater, should there ever be any, can flow underneath the main floor.
