201602 Pool Renovation Project
Winter 2016 -- NS-SC.org -- North Springfield Swim Club (NSSC) Project Renovation Update -- February 2016
After more than 50 years, our community swim club is going through a major renovation. Built in 1957 and one of the first original 5 community pools built in Northern Virginia, NSSC is finally having a face lift. As of January 1, demolition has taken place, dumpsters are in place, and roof trusses delivered! Mid-February, a roof will be placed over the entire bath house—previously it was “open-air” in keeping with the 1950’s style. Completely new, updated bath and changing rooms will be built and all areas will finally meet the ADA, handicapped accessible design requirements, that didn’t even exist when the original bath house was built. The construction is to be completed by opening day for the summer 2016 season.

The pool’s Board of Directors and the Renovation Committee, headed by Robert Sweeney (previous President), Kathy and Mike Dannholz, has been working tirelessly (and on a volunteer basis!) over the past several years, planning, getting funding in place, and preparing the grounds for this historic event. From several area businesses, 2 local North Springfield residents were selected to lead the project. Shamual Choudhury (Easton Drive) of Moore Architects is the lead architect and Steve Bowes (Atlee Place) of Phoenix Home Services, is the lead contractor.
Walk over to the site, at the intersection of Leesville Blvd. and Earlehurst Street, to check out the progress over the next several weeks. Updated photos will be added to the pool website during the spring as well: ns-sc.org. Yes, neighbors this is really happening!
