Blue Rock Construction delivered a new 4,500-square-foot pool building to the existing Educational Testing Service hotel and conference center in Princeton, NJ.

ETSThe building features a 3,000-square-foot pool, fitness center, locker rooms and office space.

There’s also an indoor/outdoor fireplace, 25 feet of slide-glass walls that open to a new paver patio. Above the pool is a 25-foot by 25-foot skylight.

Blue Rock also added new HVAC, plumbing and electric services during the eight-month project.


“Blue Rock Construction Inc. partnered with my company ETS to build an extension to the Chauncey Conference Center that is located on our site in Princeton, NJ. The extension consisted of an indoor salt water pool, exercise gym and a men’s and women’s locker room.  The project was met with many challenges from the weather with an unusually cold and snowy winter. They also contended with noise related problems, as they had to work around an active conference center that had ongoing meetings and conferences while the construction moved forward. They performed very well despite the challenges and accommodated all of our needs and expectations. The project was kept within budget and completed on time as the schedule was very demanding.

“The team from Blue Rock was extremely professional and kept us informed of all activity  related to the construction. The coordination with all the contractors was handled with great professionalism and ease as we moved towards the completion date. I was very impressed with the Blue Rock Team during the construction project and want to give a special thank you to Chris Frey and Chris Celona in particular as they worked with us meticulously throughout.

“We were very satisfied with the finished product and the overall workmanship supplied by them. We will continue to keep our good relationship with Blue Rock into the future as they proved to be a dependable, reliable and professional company to work with. Thank you for the beautiful finished product and we look forward to years of continued successes when we partner with you again.”

All the best,
Larry Zukowski
