SACRAMENTO, Calif.  – A Sacramento based engineering firm, Barrish Pelham and Associates recently won an Excellence Award from the Structural Engineers Association of Central California (SEAOCC) for its recently constructed project the Central Park Indoor Pool in Roseville, CA.

The City of Roseville’s latest civic jewel, the Central Park Aquatics Complex, addressed the city’s need for a state-of-the-art facility serving the northeast Roseville and Rocklin areas that was sustainable and energy efficient. As part of the developing park complex, the facility was designed to embrace the open air and park atmosphere in its urban setting. With construction costs totaling, $11.76 million, the facility is comprised of a central, 13,000 square foot, pre-fabricated pool enclosure surrounded by 12,000 square feet of site-built support structures containing locker/shower rooms, staff offices and mechanical enclosures. Inside the enclosure are two swimming pools for child recreation and lap swimming. The Central Park Aquatic Center is a demonstration of responsible, practical design that is still beautiful and inviting to the public it serves.

Barrish Pelham and Associates received its award at the SEAOCC award ceremony in Sacramento this month, along with other local structural engineering firms.
