Project Description:

The City of San Clemente intends to repair and/or rehabilitate this historic pool house and its associated pool. The Beach Club is a wood frame two story structure with approximately 4500 square foot lower floor footprint. The lower level includes swimming pool changing rooms, interior restrooms, exterior restrooms, manager’s office, multi-purpose “Club Room”, kitchen, electrical room and pump room. The Ole Hanson Beach Club is deteriorating due to its age and exposure to the harsh marine environment. Due to the Beach Club’s listing on the Federal Historic Register, the team must follow strict procedures following the National Historic Preservation Act. Work includes assessment of current conditions, incorporating a limited report on the building conditions, design work to produce a preliminary design report, final construction document and construction support.
