The two-story, steel-and-masonry structure includes a full-size gymnasium, enclosed walking track, locker rooms, offices, restroom facilities and a double-height lobby with mezzanine access to the walking track. The project made extensive use of day lighting to reduce lighting costs and promote occupant health and well being. Overall, the building was designed to use 25-percent less energy than traditional construction. The white roof reflects sunlight to reduce overall heating and cooling loads while a 600-square-foot green roof over the locker rooms reduces building runoff.
