The existing 1950’s "Starburst" skating rink was razed to make way for the new 29,000 square foot state of the art, energy efficient Gold's Gym. The new gym was constructed on the existing Starburst foundation and was completed in four months. The new facility consisted of: new high-efficiency windows, higher R-values than Code requirements, high-efficiency lighting with occupancy controls, advanced daylighting strategies, high-efficiency HVAC equipment with a digitally controlled building management system. Membership increased dramatically once the new facility was opened. The estimated cost of this project: $2,800,000. Completion date: April 2006
