WARRIOR FITNESS CENTER
Nellis Air Force Base, North Las Vegas, Nevada
Completed in 2012, this 2-story, 112,000 sq ft fitness center on Nellis Air Force Base in North Las Vegas, Nevada, features an elevated running track, three basketball courts, a weight-training and equipment room, and a six-lane lap pool. The elevated track provides views of the adjacent airfield, mountain ranges and the Las Vegas skyline. Symmetrical “wing” structural elements reference the aeronautic inspiration of the fitness center. The building is oriented and designed to be responsive to the harsh desert climate and meet the standards of the U.S. Air Force for aesthetics, functionality, and environmental sustainability.
The Warrior Fitness Center is certified LEED Gold and won a 2010 Concept Design Honor Award as well as a 2012 Merit Award in Recognition of Design Excellence from the USAF.
