For the new Athletic and Fitness Center at Grinnell College, the design team needed to address the combination of high internal temperature and humidity of the natatorium set in a cold climate.  To minimize problems, such as staining, icicle formations, corrosion and microbial growth, SGH reviewed designs and recommended modifications to improve the performance of vapor retarders and air and thermal barriers, as well as to achieve continuity.
