California university recreation center eyes LEED Gold
A $40 million Student Recreation Center is planned for California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Funded through student fees, the 120,000-sf center will aim for LEED Gold certification. C.W. Driver (construction) and LPA Inc. (designer) head the Building Team, with construction slated to begin next year. The three-story recreation center will feature a new pool, three-court gymnasium, multi-activity court gymnasium, elevated jogging track, weight and fitness rooms, and racquetball courts. Exterior finishes include glass, metal panels, and stone with cantilevered sections on three sides. An outdoor recreation pool with deck area, sports club spaces, multi-purpose rooms, social lounge, and administration space round out the design.
