CrossFit Firefly

Ukiah, CA
Expansion, renovation + conversion of existing building for a CrossFit training gym


With a third child on the way, our client wanted to get healthier and was motivated to try CrossFit. He quickly got addicted, was trained to be a coach, and bought a gym! Self-proclaimed entrepreneurs, the vision of this joint venture by the husband-and-wife team is to create a beautiful and functional gym that doubles as a community hub to host events outside of gym use.

Beyond Efficiency is working with the architect to advise on how to best leverage the thermal mass of the existing masonry structure to minimize cooling, in balance with an insulation retrofit to minimize space heating in the winter. We are also working with the client to understand their unique mechanical systems requirements for the space and range of occupancies and develop the HVAC scheme. As of fall 2018, the project is in design development.
