Recent projects include Mayport Fitness Center in JAX,FL. The Owner is the US Navy, NAVFAC SE. This project is recently completed and includes a Natatorium with a unique exhaust system designed to remove harmful chloramine gases that are responsible for respiratory challenges for many patrons. The Natatorium dehumidification equipment waste heat from DX compressors is the first stage of heating for the pool. Project is slated for LEED Silver.
UPDATE: The project has earned 72 of 110 point to earn LEED GOLD certification.
