Shawnee Mission (Kan.) district ready to build $27.8 million aquatic center

Board approves contract for facility that will be built in Lenexa, Kan.

The Shawnee Mission (Kan.) school district is scheduled to begin construction next month on a $27.8 million aquatic center in Lenexa.

School board members approved construction contracts Monday night for the aquatic center and a parking garage. Construction is expected to begin on the aquatics facility in late October.

The district says the center will include a 50-meter competition pool with diving wells and a 25-yard pool that will be used for a variety of aquatics activities. 

It also will have seating for viewing aquatics competitions, locker rooms, a concession stand and a dry-land training area.   

The facility is being built in partnership with the City of Lenexa. Funding for the project comes from a $223 million bond issue approved by voters in 2015.  

The architect is ACI Boland and the construction manager is JE Dunn Construction.
