ISHOF Aquatic Complex Update

The jobsite was closed for Labor Day, however the Hensel Phelps team has been working hard all summer building new pools for the City of Ft. Lauderdale.

Next week we will see the concrete poured for the dive well walls, this work will take between 8-10 hours and includes an estimated 500 cubic yards of concrete.

A new exfiltration trench is being excavated on the north side of the property down the parking lot, electrical and plumbing work is going in for the pool filtration systems.

Work continues on the north side building foundations and utilities.

Design work continues on the27M dive tower and south locker room building.  Demolition for the south building is estimated to start the beginning of next year, 2021.


The Diving Well has seen a lot of work over the summer.

June 10: Tremie Seal – Lower Floor foundation = 1,197 cys, 136 trucks of concrete

August 4:  Dive Well Floor = 355 cys, 36 trucks

September 11:  Dive Well Walls = Estimating 500 cys, first 80 cyc will be a Xypex waterproofing mix

The foundations are completed in one continuous pour with the cement trucks arriving within the shortest interval as possible from Port Everglades.
After the floor foundations were poured, the work on the walls was next.  The yellow plastic is to protect the sheet piles. The sheet piles will be removed after the concrete has set.

Main Competition Pool

Most of the sheet piles have been removed around the 50M pool and plumbing work continues for the filtration system.

June 18:  Floor = 620cys, 68 trucks

July 2 & 9:  Walls =  Combined 165 cys of concrete

During the week of September 4th, there will be an estimated 10-hour concrete pour to replace the dive pool walls in one continuous pour.  Estimated start time 3:00 AM to miss the afternoon lightning and rain storms that come with working in late August/early September.
