Tupelo Aquatics Center
Architect: JBHM Architects
Location: Tupelo, MS
Completed in 2013, this state-of-the-art natatorium serves as a fun and health-oriented community space, hosting both recreational and regional/state competitive swimming. The facility has won an AIA Merit Award and was named the Tourist Attraction of the Year by the Mississippi Tourism Association.
Our work included sound system design for side-by-side meets, with an integrated paging system, in a highly reverberant environment. Acoustical recommendations included sound isolation and room acoustics throughout the building, including offices. Special challenges included corrosive chloride environment and a large, reverberant space.
