Cleary Zimmermann Engineers provided MEP design services for the new 74,028 SF recreation center, approved by voters in the 2013 Bond Program. The facility included a gymnasium with basketball courts, an elevated running track, a cardio facility, a group exercise room, a child care area, offices, common areas, locker rooms, and restrooms, as well as lap and leisure pools.
The HVAC system consisted of four packaged rooftop units, two pool units with high-velocity/medium pressure ducting, and energy recovery for locker rooms. Carbon dioxide sensors and daylight harvesting were incorporated into the design to improve occupant comfort. The building had a primary riser, pad-mounted power company transformer, exterior power company meter, and primary conductors. All lighting within the building was LED or fluorescent with occupancy sensors. Two gas fired domestic hot water heaters provided hot water to all lavatories, sinks, and showers, and two pool boilers provided heating for the pool water when there was no free heating available from the pool units.
