"The finished project reflects a quality of design and innovation that we are extremely pleased with. Our new image has created a great amount of enthusiasm... In addition, since cost is always such a priority on projects like this, the fact that this project (Goldring Fitness Center) came within budget and was completed two months ahead of schedule has added to the good feeling that we have for this entire endeavor."

The renovation and addition project included the design of the Goldring Fitness Center, an Early Childhood Center and Older Adult Center. A project centerpiece was the dramatic new entrance designed by the STBA team. The Goldring Fitness Center, located on the JCC's 2nd floor, was renovated to accommodate a 2,500 SF cardiovascular fitness and weight training area, a separate circuit training room, a 1,300 SF aerobics studio and two racquetball courts. The design team complemented this area with separate spa areas for men and women, each containing a whirlpool, steam room, sauna, massage facilities and lockers. In addition to renovating existing space at the JCC's Early Childhood Center, two new classrooms, two after-care classrooms, and two crafts and activities rooms for older adults were added.
