Oakley Recreation Center wins American Public Works Association Project Award for Small Cities/Rural Communities

Oakley Recreation Center

The Oakley Recreation Center was recently awarded a 2020 American Public Works Association (APWA) Project Award for Small Cities/Rural Communities. The Recreation Center, designed for the City of Oakley by Siegel & Strain Architects and landscape designed by Gates & Associates, is a new $6.7 million, 9,500 square-foot multi-use building on a 6.5-acre site designed for a variety of community events and recreation activities. As one of the youngest incorporated cities in the Bay Area and one of its fastest growing communities, the City of Oakley invested in the Recreation Center to meet the rapidly increasing needs of the community for places to gather and congregate.

The project includes a large 4,152 square-foot dividable community room, a 2,117 square-foot commercial kitchen, recreation offices, and an outdoor patio. With a capacity up to 800 people, the Recreation Center provides the space that was greatly needed for events that unite the community. The site also includes large gathering areas and an athletic field.

The Oakley Recreation Center is designed to demonstrate sustainable building design. Green design features include daylighting, a high-performing building envelope including low-emissivity dual glazing, sunscreens and window shading, Forest Stewardship Certified wood, high-efficiency mechanical, electrical and lighting systems, low-flow plumbing fixtures, high-recycled content materials, low formaldehyde and VOC building materials. Site improvements include extensive grading, native landscaping and irrigation, retaining walls, bioswales, site paths, permeable paving, bicycle and vehicular parking and tree replacement.
