Georgia State University Aquatics-to-Basketball Complex Adaptive Re-use Conversion
Adaptive reuse of an aquatics facility that had not been used in 20 years. Leapley led the transformation from aquatics facility to basketball complex by filling in the existing pool under the court with lightweight concrete, polystyrene blocks, a vapor barrier, and additional concrete to level the subsurface to the new basketball court. Leapley then built the wood flooring system on top of the former pool space to meet NCAA college level requirements. The transformation was completed with the installation of six baskets – four of which can be raised, two scoreboards, and anchors for volleyball net stanchions.
