Join us for a tour of the DD2 Aquatic Center (Dorchester Country School District 2), adjacent to Fort Dorchester High School in North Charleston. The tour, lead by Brantley Construction Services, contractors on the project, will be a great opportunity to get an early look at the largest aquatics center in the region.
From Count On News 2:
“It’s a project five years in the making and crews are now working to build the Aquatic Center in North Charleston near Fort Dorchester High School. North Charleston City Councilman Ron Brinson says, ‘We have some site work beginning and the actual construction should start in the next two to three weeks.’”
“This $22.5 million project is a joint effort between the City of North Charleston and Dorchester District 2. DD2 is contributing $7.5 million and North Charleston is paying the remaining $15 million. Brinson says, ‘This is going to be a gathering place for all of the high schools in our area for competitive swimming and also for some national groups We already have interest in that. Swimming has become a very popular sport for young people and for us old folks alike.’"
The new 53,000 square foot natatorium will house an Olympic-size swimming pool with ten lanes, a warm-up pool, locker rooms, equipment rooms, and administrative areas. It will be used for competitions, community exercise, and swimming lessons.
