Lake Forest, CA
PACE was contracted to perform the conceptual design, design development plans and construction documents to renovate the swim lagoon for the Lake Forest Community Association. The existing swim lagoon had severe water quality issues and was closed by the Orange County Health Care Agency due to issues related to clarity. PACE’s design for the new 400,000-gallon, 20,000 square foot swim lagoon provides sand beach areas simulating a natural swimming environment. The pool water quality is significantly improved by the new design and has been commended by the Orange County Health Agency. The design is maintenance-friendly and required innovative design to work with existing conditions. Also, the design of the beach shoreline prevents algae growth in the sand media by allowing disinfected water to be circulated through the sand. This design is part of a guaranteed maximum price contract with a contractor where PACE remains the engineer-of-record from concept through construction. PACE is also contracted to provide construction administration, as-built plans and an operations and maintenance manual.
