Delivered as a design-build project, the Mayport Fitness Center greatly expands training and recreational activities on base. The LEED Gold certified fitness facility includes over 18,000 square feet of strength training and cardio floor areas, three group exercise rooms and a cycling studio. There are also two basketball courts, two racquetball courts, a family fitness room and a 50-meter pool.
The building achieved LEED Gold certification, exceeding the original target of Silver. A roof-mounted solar thermal domestic water heating system was sized to meet 30% of the hot water requirements and low-flow plumbing fixtures reduce water usage by 30%. Dimming controls, daylight harvesting strategies and LED exterior lighting with dark sky cut-offs also enhance energy efficiency.
