Mission Viejo’s Marguerite Aquatics Complex Earns AI 2019 Dream Design Award

marguerite aquatics complex

The City of Mission Viejo’s newly renovated Marguerite Aquatics Complex has earned the 2019 Aquatics International Dream Design Award.

The home of one of the most successful swimming and diving clubs in the world opened a new chapter in spring 2018 after an extensive state-of-the-art renovation.

The center features a new 45-foot dive tower with platforms wide enough for synchronized diving, the first in Orange County. It also boasts a 50-meter pool and shallow warm-up pool — both used for learn-to-swim and open recreation when not used to hone future Olympians from the Mission Viejo Nadadores.

Dryland training areas, a spa, grandstands, score boards, sound systems, closed-circuit televisions and meet-management systems rounded out the renovation.

The scoreboard serves double duty – for both swimming and diving events as well as community occasions. The stone used to veneer the dive tower and other features throughout the complex blend with nearby City buildings. Energy-conserving features include high-efficiency motors with variable-speed drives and hi-tech condensing pool boilers that increase heating efficiency by up to 16%.

During the renovation, to avoid wasting the 2 million gallons of water in the existing pools, the City neutralized and drained it to a nearby creek to be captured and pumped to a reclaimed water-treatment plant, where it would be prepared for use in irrigation.
