Aquatics and Pool Facilities
In February of 2013, Larkin Aquatics merged with Lamp Rynearson, adding their aquatics design expertise to our civil engineering, surveying, planning and consulting team. Since designing our first swimming pool over 60 years ago, we’ve successfully completed hundreds of aquatic projects for municipal and public clients throughout the Midwest. Our expertise, knowledge and proven approach can help you deliver an aquatic center that will be a centerpiece of your community for generations to come.
How We Help Your Community.
Planning to renovate or build an aquatic facility is an enormous undertaking, but the Aquatics team at Lamp Rynearson is ready to take the plunge with you! We strive to let the details of your dream and big-picture goals drive the project. Whether your goal is to celebrate local history, create a modern destination or maximize constrained sites, our professional aquatics staff know how to manage complex technical demands of aquatic design and important details to turn your vision into reality.
A well-planned facility provides fitness and recreation – all in a safe environment. We will help you better understand the needs of your target market, clarify your goals and project the financial performance of your facility.
As one of the most experienced aquatic facility designers in the country, Larkin Aquatics can answer your questions about site selection, facility design, special features, traffic flow, costs, operations and maintenance. Gaining support throughout your community is a must. We will work with you to gain support and secure project funding.
From minor structural repairs to full-scale retrofits, the team at Lamp Rynearson is ready to get started. Our experts can show you how equipment upgrades, added play structures, or pool depth changes can revitalize your facility.
Kansas City is known as The City of Fountains. Did you know that Lamp Rynearson was the engineering team for many of Kansas City’s most famous fountains? A custom fountain can be a spectacular addition to virtually any indoor or outdoor space. Our design experts will help you create the impact you desire. Whether you want your fountain centerpiece to attract attention to a particular area, provide entertainment, or simply break up space in an aesthetically pleasing way, we understand this process.
A detailed feasibility study is crucial to your project’s long-term success. We will identify what is needed to take your community’s aquatic facilities to the next level as we work with you to examine project goals, demographics, funding options, revenue projections, and operating costs.
See your ideas come to life in a detailed 3D drawing! Our experts work with you to select the pool size, equipment, and water features that fit your project. A preliminary conceptual plan enables more accurate estimating of construction, operation, and maintenance costs.
Before incurring substantial costs, it’s important to determine the most cost-effective way to meet your community’s needs. Our life cycle cost analysis outlines the total cost of facility ownership from the start of the project through its entire life span. This puts everyone on the same page, minimizing the risk of surprise expenses down the road.
Lamp Rynearson is not affiliated with any suppliers, but we can help you gather competitive bids from contractors in your area. We’ll interpret technical terms and variances to make sure the bids include quality materials and cover everything you requested. Our insight will help you select the right contractors for your project.
We can work hand-in-hand with the contractors you select to see that your needs are met. Involving us in the construction phase is the best way to help ensure every aspect of your facility is built with integrity, according to the agreed upon design specs and budget.
If you prefer to have a single point of accountability for your entire project from start to finish, Lamp Rynearson can accommodate you. We have a select set of top-notch construction contractors we are willing to partner with to create a unified design/build team for clients who desire a single source solution.
