Los Angeles Harbor College - Physical Education and Wellness Center

Los Angeles, California

The 47,000-SF facility features a gymnasium, exercise and weight rooms, locker rooms, dance studio, therapy pool and a home for trophies and plaques in the school’s hall of fame. The one-story facility also contains an adaptive physical education room for people with disabilities, auditorium-style classroom, administrative offices for the Athletic Department, and offices for campus security.  Sustainable features include accommodations for accessing natural daylight, glazed windows, a white roof to reduce heat, waterless urinals, and landscaping that maximizes water efficiency.

The project was completed in phases, allowing the existing gymnasium to remain operational during construction of the new building. Main services were routed around the existing building so as to not interfere with the demolition of the existing building when it was time.
