Diamond Physical Education Center
The four-building Physical Education Center and pool, originally constructed in 1965, underwent a complete renovation. The new 44,000 square-foot facility upgrade includes the pool area, locker rooms, team rooms, and indoor and outdoor classrooms. A new gym floor and scoreboard were installed. Natural lighting, efficient heating and air circulation systems, as well as solar panels for heating the pool and energy-producing photovoltaic umbrellas (carports) in the parking lot, are just some of the innovative design ideas incorporated into the project. The new complex opened in fall 2009 and achieved LEED® Gold Certification for its use of sustainable building practices.
