Erie Community Center

Project Type:
Community Recreation
Erie, Colorado

After years of discussions regarding the possibility of building a recreation/senior center in Erie, in April 2006, Erie voters authorized the town to borrow the necessary amount to build a center. In addition to the borrowed amount, other funding sources were secured to realize the 64,000 square foot facility. Erie residents formed a committee and were very involved in the process which also involved determining the amenities that now make up the center.

Conserving energy was a priority, so steps were taken to incorporate energy conservation elements. The most prominent thing done was the inclusion of a hydronic solar collection system that will pre-heat all pool and domestic water uses. To save over 325,000 gallons of treated water per year, a regenerative media filter was installed to manage the water filtration.
