The Cal Poly Recreation Center in San Luis Obispo is a social staple within the boundaries of the university. With plans to undergo a flooring renovation in the second-story exercise area, a new layout of machines and equipment is desired by the administrative and maintenance staff. Accounting for current market demand trends, space, and owner compliance, this report displays the proposed layout for the facility’s fitness area and the required information for a successful product. The following report will present the area’s existing layout design, the available space for remodel, and a preliminary layout design. In addition, the following report will display the research process which was conducted, in order to generate the most logical floor plan. Though progress for the construction project has been postponed due to COVID-19 orders, a layout change will still be necessary for future progress. With only few code requirements to be considered (i.e. ADA, Fire Marshall regulations, etc.), creative freedom is prominent in the proposed design. The adaptation to COVID-19 circumstances and assurance that all building and safety codes were met, presented valuable lessons to be learned for the future of this project, as well as other construction endeavors.
