POMONA COLLEGE – CENTER FOR ATHLETICS, RECREATION AND WELLNESS
220 E. 6th St., Claremont
Developer: Pomona College
GC: C.W. Driver
Architect: SCB Architects

The new 95,000 square foot athletics and recreation center was designed to support the growing Pomona-Pitzer varsity athletes, intramural athletes, club athletes, and student physical education classes, as well as fitness and recreation programming for students, faculty, and staff. The design called for a new and larger recreational fitness area, including additional space for cardio workouts. In addition to a general use weight room, there is a dedicated varsity weight room, and locker rooms were “right-sized” to provide sufficient space for the groups that use them, with separate facilities for faculty and staff in addition to varsity teams. More than half of the rebuilt facility is new construction, and the existing Voekel Gym structure was seismically upgraded and reconfigured to enhance the building’s usability.

The facility earned LEED Platinum certification for sustainability through its use of highly efficient cooling and heating systems, super-low-flow plumbing fixtures, low-E glass, no-VOC and low-VOC finishes, LED lighting, extensive use of daylighting, ample natural daylighting, passive solar shading strategies, along with a planned rooftop solar array and high solar-reflective roofs. Its extensive features to save energy and water result in a 35% EUI reduction compared to code baseline, a 39% indoor water-use reduction and a 50% outdoor water-use reduction.
