Remodeled existing spaces to improve delivery of recreation services: remodeled and reconfigured main lobby, and replaced furniture. Remodeled the exercise areas for separation of conflicting activities. Improved the function of spaces for operational efficiency and patron service: increased security monitoring and added to the intercom network for better control of the facility. Upgraded building systems to extend the useful life of the facility: provided selective air conditioning, replaced water heater to increase capacity for patron showers, and replaced electrical lighting fixtures with energy efficient ones. Upgrade protective finishes to extend the life of the facility: restore 13-year-old roofing membranes, refurbish exterior stucco and block masonry to increase imperviousness and longevity, replaced portions of roofing systems where infrared imaging identified water intrusion, and removed portions of existing stucco exterior cladding to remediate significant moisture intrusion identified by infrared imaging.
