The Design Criteria Package for Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Complex improvements involves an $18.2 million budget. Improvements include removal of the existing Main Competition Pool, and replacement with an expanded and fully FINA-compliant [Fédération Internationale de Natation] pool with two movable stainless bulkheads. The existing Diving Pool and underground observation room will be removed and replaced with a new fully FINA-compliant pool with a dive tower of five platform levels and one-meter and three-meter springboards. Metal bleachers for 550+/- spectators will be added to the west side of the Diving Pool. The existing Divers Spa will be replaced with a new larger spa. Other improvements include new surfacing and gutters for the existing Training Pool; new surfacing for the existing Instructional Pool; and raising the pool deck to allow for increased pool depth competition levels. A new grandstand building and bleachers will replace the existing north side facility, providing a fabric shade canopy, new restrooms, concessions, ticket office, and metal bleachers for 1500+/- spectators.
