Abstract:

The proposed action is to construct a new fitness center of approximately 4,700 gross square meters in place of the existing fitness center building 800 at MAFB-Gunter Annex. The existing fitness center is undersized, outdated, and has structuralmechanical deficiencies that contributed to a determination that the existing program requirements are 44 deficient when compared with the USAF Fitness Facilities Design Guide. The proposed site of the new fitness center facility is about five hundred feet east of the existing fitness center, between the existing center and Turner Boulevard. A basketball court, racquetball court and four tennis courts currently occupy the proposed site and will have to be demolished to allow for construction of the new facility. The new fitness center facility will consist of a lobby, administrative areas, support areas, locker rooms, a gymnasium, group exercise areas, fitness equipment areas and racquetball courts. It will be a steel frame structure supported on a reinforced concrete foundation with masonry exterior walls, a standing seam metal roof, fire protection, HV AC, electrical and plumbing systems and connections to existing utilities. Construction activities will include site work, construction of the building and construction of a parking lot. After the new fitness center facility is completed and occupied the existing fitness center, Building 800, will be demolished.
