Erickson-Hall Commences SoCal High School Pool Redesign

By Eric Althoff

COVINA, Calif.—Erickson-Hall Construction Company is diving into Covina High School’s pool remodeling to bring the facility up to modern standards in terms of training, community usage and recreation.

Erickson-Hall will be replacing the entire pool and support equipment with an advanced pool and aluminum bleacher seats for 400. The contractor will also be adding LED lighting in the pool itself, as well as updating the scoreboard, installing new fencing and gates, renovating the paving and performing related below-grade utilities upgrades.

“The Covina High School Pool Remodel represents our dedication to providing state-of-the-art facilities that support the holistic development of our students,” said Dr. Elizabeth Eminhizer, superintendent of Covina-Valley Unified School District. “We are excited to be working with Erickson-Hall Construction Company on this initiative as it underscores both of our teams’ commitment to fostering vibrant educational environments where students can thrive both academically and athletically.”

“We are privileged to collaborate with Covina-Valley Unified School District on this transformative project,” added Mat Gates, President of Erickson-Hall. “The revitalized pool will serve as a hub for aquatic activities, promoting physical fitness, teamwork and community connection in Covina. We hope that this space exceeds expectations and enriches the lives of students and community members alike.”

The pool renovation work is expected to finish up by next winter.

Erickson-Hall’s portfolio of school-related construction projects includes $1.5 billion of K-12 and higher education work.
