In keeping with Ensworth’s desire to increase energy efficiency and encourage environmental awareness by students, the 31,781 square foot Red Gables gym includes energy efficient mechanical and lighting systems and features a geothermal heat pump for heating and cooling that is approximately 40% more efficient than a typical heating and cooling system. Despite an aggressive schedule and the additional safety challenges of construction while school was in session, the facility was delivered on time, complete with fitness room and a unique ceiling-mounted volleyball system that can raise and lower the volleyball net automatically.
