Hood College is an independent liberal arts college located in the historical city of Frederick, Maryland. Frederick is the third largest city in Maryland and is located approximately one hour from Washington D.C. and Baltimore. The school has close to 2,500 students in both graduate and undergraduate programs and prides itself on it’s competative athletic programs. The college has been in the process of upgrading their aquatics center and in the fall of 2012 hired Universal Fabric Structures to design and build a new cost effective structure for their pool.
The existing pool at Hood was expanded by 2 lap lanes and the college removed the old air inflated structure it once used and UFS began raising arches in mid to late October with construction completed by late November.
The structure is unique and spans from 80 feet to 90 feet in width and is 115 feet in length. Timelines for the project were tight so UFS used it’s aluminum TFS-RV series structure which can be raised and installed in weeks as apposed to months like traditional construction. Now completed Hood has a state of the art, insulated and cost effective facility that will be used by the college swim team as well other local swim organizations.
