Sherman Lake YMCA

Sherman Lake YMCA

This unique rural YMCA facility is used by regular fitness members, business groups for retreats, and campers. We expanded the main facility and achieved a goal of net-zero energy use increase. Elements of the multi-phased project included:

  • An energy feasibility study to evaluate alternative energy sources, HVAC system options, and super-insulated architectural construction options
  • A new gymnasium/support areas addition
  • A new fitness area addition
  • A two-classroom addition with concession area
  • Durable finishes such as concrete floors and block walls to minimize maintenance
  • A green roof on the new additions and a roof-top observatory l The design fits into the natural topography of the site
