Aquatic excellence

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center gives the Volunteers' swimming, diving and water-polo programs a premier aquatic facility. The center opened in August 2008 and includes an eight-lane, 50-meter by 25-yard competition pool, as well as a separate competition diving well featuring five platforms and six springboards.

The 72,000-square-foot structure provides permanent seating for 1,800 and space for another 2,000 on the pool deck. The $24.3 million project also includes training facilities, a conference room, locker rooms, offices, a multipurpose room and elevated timing booth.

University officials expect the structure to help attract top swimming and diving recruits, and to host premier aquatic events.

HNTB (Kansas City, Mo.) was design architect for the facility. Associate architect is Lindsay & Maples Architects, Inc. (Knoxville, Tenn.)
