Hockessin Athletic Club
This $22 million, 105,000 SF project includes a state-of-the-art, privately-owned fitness center and parking garage located on a 12-acre site. The fitness center features equipment areas, group exercise rooms, gymnasium, two cafes, pre-school, women’s physical therapy, four indoor pools with a slide, and one outdoor pool. The 17,000 SF natatorium with three pools are enclosed in aluminum and glass and feature an operable roof. Spaces were purposely designed to separate youth activity and adult areas (except for two of the swimming pools) and maximize program flexibility in order to adapt to the constant changes in the fitness industry. The building is equipped with energy saving features such as energy recovery mechanical units, an energy management system, and automatic lighting controls.
