In 2009, planning began for the new Brooks Family YMCA in Charlottesville with construction beginning in 2015. The facility is built around a family aquatics center with a 10-lane fitness/competition pool, automated timing system, scoreboard, and spectator viewing area. It also includes a family recreation pool with water slides, zero-depth entry area, and play features. Other amenities include a spa, dry sauna, double gymnasium with multi-purpose stage and elevated running track, fitness and community rooms, child care area, locker rooms, and teaching/demonstration kitchen.
2RW performed a building survey and compiled a report with recommendations for reducing the yearly energy expenditures and the costs for performing proposed work. The study helped the YMCA select energy conservation measures appropriate for the projected construction and operating budgets. It also served as a guideline for fundraising goals.
2RW also provided MEP design and construction administration for this new facility. Components of the MEP system include:
