Fitness Center – WPAFB

Location: Wright-Patt AFB, Dayton, OH

Highlights: We completed over 40,000 manhours without a lost time accident.  We received an Overall Outstanding Performance Rating from the Corps of Engineers and a 2003 AFMC Design Awards – Honor Award for this project.

This fitness center is housed within Building 20057, a World War II aircraft hangar. The project took advantage of the huge volume within the building by providing for an independent foundation and superstructure that allows vertical expansion, increasing the number of floors and the total usable floor area, if desired in the future.

The purpose of this project was toprovide expanded Physical Fitness Facilities to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base personnel, including exercise equipment rooms, showers, locker rooms, classrooms, activities rooms, cooking demonstration area, basketball courts, racquetball courts, running track, child care area, and juice bar.  In addition, a new Health & Wellness Center was also designed to be located in this facility.

The second floor above the locker rooms and HAWC contains a running track at the perimeter of the floor. The south half of the floor contains a Spinning Room, Aerobics Room, Demonstration Kitchen and classrooms. The north half of the Second Floor is devoted to cardiovascular machines.  There are sound rated walls on this project.
