The Palo Alto College Natatorium is comprised of a single building with integrated gymnasium with full basketball court, two story classroom/workout room center wing, and full, Olympic size competition swimming pool with diving platforms and bleachers.  The common wall between Gymnasium and Natatorium is single wythe CMU. Years after construction, building envelope issues were identified that indicated positive air movement from the Natatorium into the adjacent classrooms that would adversely impact the structure, interior finishes and the conditioning of the spaces.
