    Location: Ottawa, Ontario

    The Glen Cairn Pool project changed the main pool in this complex from a 25m shallow swimming pool to a 25m pool with a deep end and diving facilities.  The mechanical equipment, which was previously housed in an adjacent community centre, was relocated into the basement of a newly constructed changing pavilion. The new open air pavilion provides for an administration office and storage, a family change room, both men’s and women's change room and showers.  Large overhangs on the pavilion’s flying glulam roof provide shady areas for lounging around the pool deck and integrates the pool space with changing facilities.
