WEST LAFAYETTE, IN — With the opening of it $17.1 million natatorium last year, Purdue University’s swim program went from an “outdated” swimming facility to a state-of-the-art Big Ten aquatic center, according to a recent Dectron press release.

The facility features a 50-meter poured concrete/tile surface pool, 12-person spa, locker rooms, permanent seating for 600 spectators, and temporary seating for an additional 800. “I think this pool brings Purdue’s aquatic facility up to the premier facilities in the Big Ten,” said Steve Ford, vice president of the Scholer Corp., which designed the center.

The HVAC system includes five Dry-O-Tron® DB-182 heat recovery humidifiers by Dectron Internationale, Roswell, GA, which were installed by mechanical contractor Freitag-Weinhardt of Terre Haute, IN. Scholer’s air distribution system was installed by contractor A to Z Sheet Metal, Lafayette.
