Terracon provided construction observation and testing services for the Donald and Ruth Furman Aquatic Center in Ames, Iowa. The 25,000-square-foot facility is located east of Squaw Creek and will feature an eight-lane, 50-meter lap area; a recreational swim area with zero-depth entry, water slides, diving boards, a water play structure, and a lazy river. The buildings will be constructed on spread-footing foundations. The structures are comprised of structural masonry and wood-framing. Concrete parking areas and underground utility work excavations were also part of Terracon's testing services.
