Construction Updates

As you may know, we have had significant climate control issues in the lower level of the Center, especially in Studio 3, since the Center opened six years ago. An investigation last summer revealed that the system in place is insufficient for evacuating the amount of warm, humid air that accumulates in the basement (from the laundry room, steam rooms, saunas, pool and activity in Studio 3).

The long-term solution we identified to permanently solve this issue is the semi-reconstruction of the ventilation system in the basement.

The first phase of construction is currently scheduled to begin on 5/29 and may last until 6/8. During the first phase, Studio 3 will be closed. The second phase will begin on 7/2 and may last until 7/13.

The second phase will require the closure of Studio 3, as well as the laundry room, hot tub, men’s and women’s steam rooms, and men’s and women’s saunas. The length of the closure is based on a worst-case scenario and may be shorter than the above dates.

Our goal is to maintain our services and group exercise schedule as well as we can, which will require some classes to shift around. The temporary Group Exercise schedules for the first phase are available below, along with construction updates. Updates will also be posted at the front desk center and via email, if we have new information.

As always, our first and most important priority is the member. The HVAC renovations are essential, not only for comfort, but also to ensure safety of our members in the basement level. We have been planning and studying the best way to handle this for some time, and much thought and discussion has been put into how to do it with the least amount of inconvenience to our members.

Please feel welcome to reach out to me with any questions, concerns or suggestions in anticipation of the construction, or during. Candice Baumgardner, our group exercise manager is also available for any questions related to the modified group exercise schedule during construction.

Thank you for being a member of our community and for your patience in the upcoming weeks.

We’ve hit a bump in the HVAC construction project and, unfortunately, must extend the construction schedule through Tuesday, June 12th. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Dear Member,

The HVAC repair project currently underway in the basement level of the Center requires an unanticipated outage of all locker room showers tomorrow, Wednesday, June 6th. Please note that the showers will closed from approximately 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m., at the latest.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you for understanding,
