This aging recreation center was in need of complete renovation due to ongoing system failures. When faced with a potential closure due to lack of funds to complete the necessary renovations, Pierce County turned to BCRA for a design solution.

Our solution was a low-emissivity paint on the underside of a new metal deck in the roof. The low-emissivity paint was cheaper, easier to apply and maintain, and more aesthetically pleasing than traditional fabric membrane systems, and it also decreases long-term operating costs because it diminishes evaporation from the ice surface. Ultimately, BCRA's efforts on Sprinker Recreation Center resulted in a 49.8 percent reduction in energy and $98,000 in energy, water, and sewer costs.
