Natatorium construction continues ahead of schedule
Construction of the Tallulah Falls School natatorium, which broke ground in April 2019, continues to power toward completion. Recent construction progress has drawn the grand opening date closer, to December 2020 instead of the original target of Spring 2021.
The state-of-the-art facility will feature a 10-lane competition-sized pool with seating up to 240 on the Upper School campus against the backdrop of Cherokee Mountain.
The natatorium will be home to the TFS competitive swim team and will also be used for physical education classes, including SCUBA, boating, and water-related safety courses and will be open for recreational use for students, faculty and staff.
“As for me and my coaching staff, we are extremely excited about the completion of the natatorium,” swim coach Rachel Nichols says. “We are one of the few schools in Georgia to have an aquatic facility on campus, and we will have one of the only indoor facilities in the area. Having a pool on campus will not only benefit the training schedule of the swim program, but it will also be a great resource for our student population.”
Ron Cantrell Construction of White County is spearheading the project, bringing to life the design of architect George Hlavenka of Hawaii.
