Welcome to the Holland Community Aquatic Center Everyday Project page! We’re just getting
started on the HCAC Renovation and Expansion for the next generation of our Aquatic Center!
We’ll be providing updates as the project progresses.

The Need to Grow
Since 1968, the Holland community has relied on Holland Community Aquatic Center for access to high-quality natatorium facilities for swimming instruction, competitive swimming, community wellness, and access for leisure swimming and play. The renovation and construction bond proposal will ensure we can continue to provide access for every age and every family, every day for years to come.
Growing Need for Space
Steady growth across all of our programs has our facility at capacity, making it difficult to balance simultaneous uses. The expansion and renovation is necessary to ensure everyday access for all ages and families.
Based on Expert Advice
Working with experts in community based aquatics programming, we have identified several critical opportunities for improvement, and have developed a strategic plan for expansion and renovation.
We are looking to add warm-water leisure access and a lap pool, updated wellness spaces, increased spectator seating and mechanical improvements to meet strategic needs.
A Long-Term Solution
Holland has a reputation for doing things the right way. The expansion and renovation is a sustainable, long-term solution to meet the needs of our rapidly growing community for the next 20 years.
Everyday Project Update
The Design Team (architects, aquatic consultants, construction manager, HCAC staff, and HACSPA Board members) has been actively meeting over the past several weeks to further develop the design parameters around the community goals for the project. We are in the schematic design phase of the project and that will take us to the end of this calendar year. The team is thoroughly investigating existing systems (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, roofing, building envelope) to understand what is in place and what will need to be replaced or upgraded. The team is also developing floor plans and exterior designs that will incorporate the various components outlined in the Everyday Project (see the Strategic Improvement section above) while improving the user experience once the project is complete. We will provide the community a chance to view the progress near the end of October.
Once the schematic design is approved by the HACSPA Board in December, we will move forward into the design development phase (much more detailed drawings) followed by generation of the construction documents in preparation for awarding contracts to multiple trade contractors through the bidding process. We plan on construction beginning sometime in the summer of 2020 with the possibility of advance site work beginning in the spring of 2020. The project is scheduled for completion by the summer of 2022. We know this is a long time to wait; but providing the best facility for the best value takes time; and we know you will be excited about the final product and proud of your investment in an outstanding aquatic center for the community.
