This $9 million renovation and expansion added 10,000 sq. ft. to the existing and new remodeled center. The center is grouped into three areas. A sports area, an activities area and a physically passive spaces. Other features include locker rooms, drop-in lockers in the gymnasium and fitness room and a warming kitchen.
As part of a sustainable-minded renovation, the entire building has a host of energy efficient measures. Building systems were revamped and replaced to maximize energy efficiency and sustainability.
To save water, automatic flush valves, automatic faucets and low flow shower heads were used to regulate water flow. To create a more energy efficient HVAC system, an energy recovery unit was utilized for the locker room areas. HVAC units with an economizer cycle and duct-mounted carbon dioxide sensors were installed to modulate the outside air dampers.
Energy savings are being seen from new LED site and interior lighting as assessed by motion, thermal and other types of automatic sensors. Dimmer and multi-level switching was installed to control the lighting levels and energy used.
The building has new safety and security systems as well. A new fire alarm and fire suppression system was installed, as well as new security and camera systems on the building interior and exterior.
