The  Georgia  Tech  Aquatic  Center  was  the  site  of  all  swimming,  diving and synchronized swimming competition as well as the swimming portion of the modern pentathlon  during  the  Centennial  Olympic  Games  in  the  summer of 1996.  The Aquatic Center provides Georgia Tech with a world-class venue for aquatic sports and serves as an important element of the physical legacy of the Games. The 1,950- seat main stadium contains a competition pool and dive pool.

 

The competition pool is 50 meters by 10 lanes, with two movable bulkheads so that courses can be set up for 1 x 50 meter competition pool, 2 x 25 yard competition pools, 25 meters or 30 meters for water polo. It also features a movable  floor  which  can  be  set  from  zero depth to ten feet, six inches.

 

The dive pool features one- and three-meter springboards  plus  one-,  three-,  five-,  seven and a half- and 10-meter platforms, as well as a Spargar system that sends a mass of bubbles from the bottom of the tank to ease entry into the water.

 

The original $21 million facility was funded entirely by the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic  Games  (ACOG).  Construction  on the  facility  began  in  July 1994  and  was completed in time to host the VIIth Synchronized Swimming World Cup in August 1995. The newly-renovated enclosure of the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center is part of an over $45 million expansion to the Campus Recreation Center.

 

There  is  full  ventilation  of  the  facility,  including  humidity  control  and  air conditioning. The facility has indirect natural sunlight coming through high glass windows on one side.

 

The facility has gone through a recent 2.4 million dollar renovation recently updating its scoreboards and facilitiy for the upcoming NCAA's in March.
