THE HEIGHTS Renovation


THE HEIGHTS Renovation - What to Expect

THE HEIGHTS facility is excitedly undergoing renovation in multiple areas of the building. The renovation includes a complete remodel of the aquatic center with upgrades happening in all of the locker rooms, an expansion of the fitness center, 3 dedicated group x fitness rooms, and enclosed balconies in the lobby on both the fitness and library sides.

Continue reading below to view the renderings of what to expect along with more details of the construction plans in each area. To see the renovations come to life you can view our bi-weekly videos of the construction in action at the bottom of the page!


   The Aquatic Center   


The aquatic center is the biggest project of the renovation. The area was completely demolished and is being built from the ground up. The features in this newly constructed area will include; four lap lanes; an enlarged hot tub; a larger 3.5' deep body of water for programming and play; a spray ground for the little ones; and an upgraded steam room and sauna. Along with that we will be upgrading the locker rooms, but we will always have facilities available for use during the renovation period.

   The Fitness Area   

The fitness area expansion will be located on two levels on the western-most court in our gymnasium. On the main level there will be three dedicated group x fitness rooms, with additional fitness space inside of the track area on the second floor. The fitness center remains open during the construction but the gymnasium and track is closed until project completion. The functional fitness area has been temporarily relocated into the former Youth WorkZone area.

Renovation Rundown: Episode 6
"Full Speed Ahead!"
June. 27, 2019


June is almost over and there is much evidence that lots has been going on at THE HEIGHTS.   The pool is definitely taking shape and you can begin to see where everything will be.  The soil issues in the pool have been remediated, so progress is full speed ahead.  Next week we hope to start pouring concrete. 

The gym area demolition is moving along as crews continue overnight work to minimize inconvenience to our members.  The track surface and some concrete have been removed and rail as well.  Very soon the track will be gone.

 Basketball goals, the gym curtain, and perimeter equipment are gone.  The gym floor is about to be removed on the west side to prepare for the new classrooms to be constructed.   

The smaller version of the functional training area has been met with positivity.  On the meeting room side, fitness classes continue to meet there.  You probably have noticed lots of fitness equipment moved and stored everywhere.  We want to make everything as accessible as possible for our fitness users and appreciate your help. 

There will still continue to be temporary locker room closures from time to time, but we will make you aware as soon as we know when these will occur.  Typically it is for just a short period.

The roofers will appear on-site soon.  There will be roof shingle replacement in the front of the building, with the area below fenced off for safety purposes.  Most of the work will be accessed from the rear of the building for the flat roof.  You may hear activity on the roof, but it should not be disruptive.

Construction hours are typically Monday-Friday, from 7a.m.-3:30p.m. , with gym demo occurring overnight.

As always, we truly appreciate everyone’s patience as we make THE HEIGHTS an even better facility than it already was.  If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

"A Jolted June"
June. 14, 2019

June has been moving fast and furious so far at THE HEIGHTS.   We experienced some soil issues in the pool, but it has not slowed down the progress.  Pipe is still being laid and surge tank walls formed and poured.  Lots of work still continues in the family locker room.  

The gym area and locker room hallway saw lots of activity this week.  Carpeting and ceiling tiles were pulled in the hallway.  Gym windows were removed into the hallway and the sprinkler system was moved in the gym area for the removal of the track, beginning next week. 

You probably have noticed lots of fitness equipment moved and stored everywhere.  We want to make everything as accessible as possible for our fitness users.  The Youth Work Zone was also transformed into a smaller version of the functional fitness area formerly in the gym.  The Work Zone is now officially closed through construction. 

In the fitness area upstairs, the existing fitness manager’s office was removed to provide access to the back stairwell as the track will not be accessible.  Beginning June 17th through project completion the full gym and track areas will be closed.  During gym demolition there will be some night activity occurring after building hours to minimize disruption to our patrons.  This should last approximately five weeks.

There will still continue to be temporary locker room closures from time to time, but we will make you aware as soon as we know when these will occur.  Typically it is for just a short period.

The roofers will appear on-site next week.  There will be roof shingle replacement in the front areas, however these will be fenced off for safety purposes.  Most of the work will be accessed from the rear of the building for the flat roof.  You may hear activity on the roof, but it should not be disruptive.

Construction hours are typically Monday-Friday, from 7a.m.-3:30p.m.

"Moving Into a Busy June"
May. 30, 2019

May is quickly wrapping up, heading into a flurry of activity in June. Demolition is complete in the pool and family locker room. You will now start to see the pool take shape and before you know it the pool walls will begin to form.
 
Next up is the gymnasium area. There will be some activity next week, with HEIGHTS staff beginning to remove some of the perimeter items. You will still be able however to utilize this area for one more week. 
Starting the week of June 10th more work will commence in the gym with hallway windows removed. 
 
Fitness classes will be moved to the meeting rooms and limited gym fitness equipment moved to the youth work zone. The work zone area will be closed beginning June 7th, re-opening on the 10th for those to 14 and older until project completion.
 
Beginning June 17th through project completion the full gym and track areas will be closed. The week of June 17th the current fitness manager’s office in the fitness area will be removed, but fitness usage should be minimally impeded.

The roofers will appear on-site June 10th working from the rear of the building. You may hear activity on the roof, but it will not be disruptive.
 
Party on the Pavement is scheduled on the grounds of THE HEIGHTS next week, June 7th and 8th. The carnival should arrive the afternoon of Wednesday the 5th to begin setting up. As the western lot is used for construction staging and the event will utilize the 3 bays in front, parking will be very, very limited. We suggest you use on street parking or neighboring lots.

The roofers will appear on-site in June, working from the rear of the building. And, as previously noted in the last update, beginning mid-June work will commence in the gym area. Once this work begins, the gymnasium and track will be closed until completion.

"Demo is Going Strong"
May. 2, 2019

Construction, or should we say “destruction” is going strong. If you've been by THE HEIGHTS lately you can see huge pieces of equipment breaking up concrete from the pool area. It’s quite a show!
 
Demolition has about two weeks left before we move into the next phase. Most of the focus will continue to be in the pool area, with some work beginning in the family locker room. While this phase is occurring, the family locker room will continue to be closed to the public as it is to be reconfigured with a new pool entrance, additional restrooms and enclosed shower spaces.
 
Beginning sometime in June, work will then commence in the gymnasium area. Once this work begins, the gymnasium and track spaces will be closed until completion. Once we know the exact start date we will make sure you are apprised. 
 
Construction hours are typically Monday-Friday, from 7a.m.-3:30p.m.

"Let the Renovations Begin"
April. 18th, 2019

Construction is officially in full swing. After closing the pool on Sunday, April 7th, staff spent the week clearing out equipment, draining the pool, and preparing for the project to get underway. Along with that, the west lot and playground were enclosed for construction staging.
 
On Monday, April 15th, construction crews began removing pool play features, the slide, rails, and any other items affixed to the pool in preparation for demolition. Demolition will begin late this week or early next week. It will be loud, but our construction management team is seeking ways to speed up this process.
 
Construction hours are typically Monday-Friday, from 7am-3:30pm. You may want to adjust your workout schedule if you do find the demolition to be too loud. 
 
As always, we truly appreciate everyone’s patience as we make THE HEIGHTS an even better facility than it already was. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact.
