Ross Park goes back a few years, but it is not every day you have the opportunity to design a facility such as this. Ted Booth worked closely with the City of Pocatello to get the biggest bang for the buck. The aquatic center includes; a bath house, lap pool, activity pool, lazy river, kiddie pool, water slide renovation, park area, and equipment building. Each of these pools is on their own pump & filter system to prevent cross contamination. The center is still running strong today.
Detention facilities are not common construction and not something we work on a daily basis. Ted Booth has had experience in this field. A few of these include the District V Juvenile Detention facility in Pocatello and the Bonneville Jail in Idaho Falls.
No matter the size or the program we are always welcoming projects that help the community and get the citizens to enjoy the great city that they live in.
Outer Limits is another facility that is not new to the area, but a vital link to our youth. Some of the amenities include: restaurant, arcade, laser tag, party rooms, and miniature golf. Outer Limits provides year round enjoyment even in our frigid winters.
The latest addition to Firebird Raceway is a new timing tower. As the track sets in a valley, Booth recessed the structure so the timing equipment can be accessed from track level. The upper floor includes VIP viewing and lounges that are accessible from the upper spectator level.
Typical of many businesses SSA/ODAR has outgrown their existing home. Working closely with the developer, SSA, GSA, and ODAR, Booth Architecture has created the new home they desperately needed.
Kids will be kids, so Booth designs to incorporate block and steel. This was done to keep the structure vandal resistant. Another design element was to eliminate roosting points for pigeons. This project dates back a few years, but is good as new. This is due to the city maintenance crew as well as the materials used.
Nearly new this building is a big part of the community. In addition to a typical library, it offers a community area for local events. As the owner wanted to go “green”, Booth implemented solar panels and switchgear. Much of this expense was absorbed by federal grants.
