British multinational infrastructure group Balfour Beatty has recently completed construction of the Triangle Aquatic Center outdoor pool area in Cary in North Carolina, home of the TAC TITANS, the top-ranked year-round swim team in the country. TAC celebrated its grand opening on July 11, marking the first Olympic-sized pool to open in Eastern North Carolina since 1981.The TAC features a 2,800-square-foot pool building, a spacious pool deck and a canopy for coaches and swimmers, as well as a 50-meter Olympic pool constructed by partner firm Paddock Construction. Balfour Beaty and Paddock Construction worked closely with design partner Integrated Designs and BNK, Inc. to deliver an integrated and state-of-the-art facility for generations of competitive swimmers. The new pool and greatly expanded aquatic center will allow the TITANS and the community of TAC swimmers to grow in the 2022-23 season and beyond.TAC is one of the largest swimming facilities in the country, with a seasoned history of successful swimmers and veteran swimmers in leadership. Staff at the center includes Claire Donahue, a 2012 Olympian, and head coach Bruce Marchionda, who qualified swimmers for the US Olympic Team in 2012, 2016 and 2020.TAC sent 16 swimmers to the US Olympic and Paralympic Trials last year, including Ashley Twitchell, Hannah Aspden, Claire Curzan and Morgan Stickney – all moved on to compete in the 2021 Olympics, where the latter three received medals. Curzan also won multiple medals at last year’s swimming world championship.
