The Blue Water Sports Club in Glen Ivy, California is a one-story, steel-framed structure with a running track over the pool area. The steel beams spanning over the pool are tapered at the ends and are exposed at the eve. Much of the steel elements are exposed, including a horizontal steel beam in the middle of the window wall at the pool. Proprietary special moment frame connections allowed the use of deeper and lighter column beam sections.
The sports club provides wellness to a 1,200-home resort community, while taking into account the area’s natural features. Located on the border of the Cleveland National Forest amid citrus groves, the club offers exceptional views of the Anderson Canyon.
