Five new academic buildings more than doubled the academic space at the Arizona State University Polytechnic Campus. The new facilities house four distinct but interrelated academic colleges, providing laboratory and classroom space for engineering, physics, anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry, science, technology, and math education.

Integrated with three existing buildings to create a cohesive complex, the new buildings are configured around three courtyards and linked by a series of open-air atriums, portals and arcades, taking advantage of the seasonally temperate climate for exterior circulation. Achieved LEED Gold certification.

Arizona State UniversityArizona State University pulled out all the stops by creating a virtual resort with the Vista del Sol student housing project with help from Shasta Pools. The Commercial Division of Shasta Pools and Spas has become the expert at helping area universities woo potential students with posh pools and welcoming water features.

"We are very pleased that Hardison Downey Kitchell and American Campus Communities had confidence in Shasta Pools to take part in this endeavor," said Bill Gullekson of Shasta Pools Commercial Division. Many universities throughout the Valley are following this trend and are updating their landscape to luxurious designs. One way universities are adding style to their campuses is by incorporating water features and pools. Shasta Pools Commercial Division has completed several of these "campus enrichment" projects and has established a reputation as the pool and water feature builder universities trust. "Shasta Pools Has built water parks for resorts as well as NCAA aquatic facilities such as Arizona State University's Mona Plummer Aquatic Center but bringing the resort-style pools to dorm life is an exciting new trend," noted John Neely, Senior Marketing Manager with Shasta Pools.

Vista del Sol, at Arizona State University, opened its doors for the 2008 fall semester. The new development, located near the main campus in Tempe, AZ, seems more like a resort than student housing. To accomplish this feel Shasta Pools and Spas Commercial Division teamed up with Hardison Downey Kitchell and American Campus Communities to create a luxurious outdoor space, which includes a posh, resort style pool and enormous spa. The palm tree lined pool is a social hub for residents of Vista del Sol. Students seeking sun have their pick of chairs to lounge on and for those who want some relief from the heat can escape to the ramadas complete with fireplace, outdoor kitchen and plenty of plush seating.

Shasta Pools has been building projects for universities all over the Valley. Additional aquatic architecture for ASU, the University of Phoenix, Grand Canyon University and Estrella Community College have all been completed by Shasta Pools.

At Grand Canyon University Shasta constructed an enormous 5,500 square foot swimming pool along with two oversized therapeutic spas. The pool features a custom, decorative stone deck and pool side cabanas. This outdoor space adds to the prestigious campus feel and gives students a deluxe area for relaxation and enjoyment.
