The Dimond Park Aquatic Center in Juneau, Alaska, has strict temperature requirements. The lap pool is maintained at 82°F, the leisure pool at 89°F, and the 20-person sauna at 170°F. McGraw Custom Construction Inc. installed the accel-E Steel Thermal Efficient Panel wall system by Syntheon, which envelops the center in nearly 20,000 sf of paneling and keeps energy costs at a manageable level. The system is a combination of cold-formed steel framing, cavity insulation, and continuous rigid-foam insulation, and was installed using a one-step process.
