Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia built a new state-of-the-art natatorium that would measure up to 75,000 square feet. The facility is unique to the campus as it holds the largest diving platform in the United States and would be hosting USA swimming programs and national meets. Any crack in a pool is detrimental because a pool is meant to contain water and cracking can compromise the high-quality look and feel to it. PREVent-C provides controlled expansion resulting in volume stability creating 90 percent fewer cracks on average compared to standard concrete. Eight months after the project was completed, the results showed there were zero cracks.
