The Town of Buckland, Massachusetts engaged our team to design a new 2,400 SF seasonal recreational swimming pool and bathhouse. The pool is sited toward views of an abutting stream and highlights the bucolic setting. The bathhouse and pool programs includes reception, changing rooms, restrooms, outdoor showers, a first aid room, staff locker room and storage. Sustainability features are central, including daylit spaces, natural ventilation, deep eaves and a roof optimized for future solar panel installation to offset all summer energy usage. The project is under tight schedule limitations, moving from Notice to Proceed to bidding in just over 5 months. Design to a limited budget is also key. Kuth Ranieri worked with the Town to meet the requirements of a state grant for park and recreation projects. The project is out for bids now, and construction is scheduled to commence in July 2022.
