In March of this year we began reaching out to HVAC contractors to have the system on the east side of the building completely replaced. After delays due to supply chain and labor force issues we are happy to report that a new system has finally been installed. This will greatly improve the cooling in the reception area and men’s locker room, and relieve the stress on the system on the other side of the building.
We also recently installed a window unit in the front training room and covered some of the windows to cut down on solar heating. These steps should result in a more enjoyable climate throughout the facility.
We are also still perusing the permitting required for expansion of the back training room. The plans for the work have already been completed and we will begin work as soon as the permits are secured. Once that is in place the actual work should only take days to complete.
Essentially, the space between training rooms that was our fitness room pre-pandemic will become part of the room primarily used for Jiu-jitsu and Thai Kickboxing classes. This is because of the fact that the fitness room was historically under utilized and the growing need for additional training space.
The work will be done in a way that does not disrupt the class schedule at all. Based on the timing of the permits the project will likely be completed some time in September of this year.
