Samena Swim & Recreation Club

Samena Swim & Recreation Club Improvements


The Samena Swim and Recreation Club (SSRC) has served the Samena Neighborhood Community in East Bellevue/Lake Hills for fifty years. The club includes two pools, an exercise room, hot tub, locker rooms, a playground/park, parking lots, and other facilities.

Following the completion of a Master Plan in the early 1990’s, several phases of upgrades were planned.

S.M. Stemper Architects completed Renovation Phases I – IV including expansion of the administration and office; new multipurpose room; new preschool and fitness room; and adult locker rooms.

Phase V, the Natatorium (covered aquatics facility), was completed in 2009 and included: a permanent building to house the indoor pool; new expanded multipurpose room; and installation of a spa/hot tub.

Phase VI, addresses improvements to the Locker Rooms and provides ADA and accessibility upgrades to the toilets, showers, and locker room area.

For all phases, SMSA provided predesign, design, and construction administration services for core and shell improvements, and oversaw lighting upgrades, fire alarm, sprinkler and electrical system installations.
